EC Confirms Registering Over 7 Million Voters After First 16 Days

Provisional data provided by the Electoral Commission (EC) suggest that the commission has successfully registered 7,279,237 prospective voters within the first 16 days of registration.

As expected the higher voter registration numbers were recorded in the Greater Accra and Ashanti regions to reflect the population density of these areas.

1,524,600 have been registered in the Greater Accra region while 1,319,498 persons have been registered in the Ashanti region.

The Savannah and North East regions recorded the lowest numbers with 126,980 and 123,715 respectively.

For the modes of identification, 63.8 percent of the registered persons used the Ghana Card, 1.8 percent used the passport, and 34.4 percent used guarantors.

The commission is some 10 million people away from reaching the Ghana Statistical Service’s projected figure of 17,109,270 for persons 18 and above.
