Voter exhibition: EC dismisses claims by NDC that it's deliberately deleting names from their stronghold
The Electoral Commission (EC) has dismissed claims by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) that it is deliberately deleting names of some people from the voters register in their stronghold.
The NDC at a press conference on September 21, 2020, said the EC was engaged in a deliberate election-rigging plot and they are still registering people even though the registration exercise has ended.
Director of Electoral Services at the EC Dr. Serebour Quaicoe says the claims are false.
On the issue concerning the deliberate attempt to take out some names, Mr Quaicoe said they are working with machines which can fail sometimes.
There have been widespread complaints about some missing names in the ongoing voter exhibition exercise.
The EC begun the voter exhibition exercise on September 18, 2020.
The voter register exhibition exercise which will last for 8 days will afford registered voters the opportunity to match their details against what has been captured in the register and to confirm the registrations.
The EC has also introduced a mobile service through which registered voters can equally check and confirm their registration.
Voters using this service are to send their voter ID Numbers to the shortcode 1422 for their details, but can only effect corrections where necessary at the EC’s respective district offices.
