The Electoral Commission (EC) has disclosed that it has registered over three million eligible voters in the ongoing voter’s registration exercise.
Samuel Tettey, EC Deputy Chairman in charge of Operations said the use of Guarantor Avenue to back their application was about one million indicating about 32 per cent while the use of passport followed with about 60, thousand representing two per cent.
“Let the Citizen Know” is an initiative that seeks to engage the electorate on its activities and processes ahead of the 2020 General Election.
He further stressed that, the queue management system in the last four days into its introduction at registration centres, has helped reduced congestion at many of the centres.
“The performance of the registration officials is such that it takes an average of five minutes to process an applicant,” he said.
“However, the same cannot be said of some number of centres in certain places such as Accra Metropolis, Tema and Ashiaman, where observing social distancing still remains a challenge,” he noted.
