The Electoral Commission is conducting a Pilot Exercise in all sixteen regional capitals in the country.
Currently, the exercise is ongoing in the Eastern Region.
This was revealed in a Facebook post on Tuesday, 2nd June, 2020.
According to the Electoral Commission, the essence of the exercise being conducted in all the regional offices of the Commission is meant to identify problems associated with the new system, including its effect under various weather conditions and find ways of mitigating them.
The commission assured that, issues identified in the registration process would be sent to their national office for rectification.
“All issues identified will be forwarded to the Commission at the national level for the necessary rectifications to be made before the commencement of the exercise at the end of this month”.
They advised that, all citizens of Ghana who are 18years and above and of sound mind are eligible for registration provided they have their Ghana Card or Ghanaian Passport as proof of identification.
“All Ghanaian citizens of 18 years and above and of sound mind are expected to register where they reside when the exercise begins; with either a Ghanaian passport or Ghana card as proof of identification or have two guarantors so they can register.
Safety measures will be put in place at all registration centres throughout the country to protect applicants, who are mandated to wear nose masks to the registration centres”.
They appealed for the cooperation of all Ghanaians to make the upcoming exercise successful.
