The Electoral Commission (EC) says it will reopen the voters’ registration exercise on Thursday, October 1, 2020 across the country in its district offices.
In a statement released by the Commission on Thursday, September 24, 2020, the one-day exercise will “give the opportunity to those who have attained the age of Eighteen (18) and Citizens who for one reason or the other were not able to register in the just ended Registration Exercise.”
The EC added that the exercise will afford persons who could not take part in the recent mass registration exercise for one reason or the other, the opportunity to register ahead of the December, 2020 polls.
This follows several criticisms about the initial exercise which ended last month as which currently undertakes the exhibition of the electoral album.
On Thursday, September 24, 2020, the EC held an emergency IPAC meeting after NDC and other stakeholders outlined some irregularities which they believe will not ogre well with the process if allowed into the upcoming elections without rectification.
The exercise is expected to be within the regulation time of 7am to 6pm.
