The restricted voter registration process must function smoothly, and the Electoral Commission of Ghana (EC) has reminded its staff of this fact.
Four machines have been placed in each district office for the registration procedure, according to the EC.
The regional directors are responsible for making any required requests for additional machines.
This information was revealed on Tuesday’s episode of Dwaso Nsem on Adom FM by the director of elections, Dr. Serebour Quaicoe.
“Every district has four machines for the EC officials to work with, but two are on standby. So if it happens that there is a need for more machines to be deployed, the regional directors have to make the request because they are on the ground supervising the exercise,” he said.
However, Dr. Quaicoe pointed out that these requests must be supported by information from the specific registration center.
All 268 district offices of the Commission are now accepting registrations, which began on Tuesday, September 12, in line with Article 45 of the 1992 Constitution.
Network connectivity issues have reportedly caused process delays in several centers. The National Democratic Congress (NDC), the opposition, has charged the EC with purposefully sending malfunctioning equipment to its strongholds.
