Six days into the ongoing limited voter registration exercise, the Electoral Commission has registered 182,831 new voters.

The 21-day exercise, which started on September 12, 2023, is meant to register some 1,350,000 persons who have turned 18 years old and eligible Ghanaians who have not previously registered with the Commission. 

However, addressing journalists at the Let the Citizens Know series today (September 18), Mrs. Mensa said that the target had been revised with the target to register 52 percent of the target population in the current exercise. 

She explained that out of the 182,831 persons that had been registered, 53.9 percent were males while females constituted 46.1 percent. 

In terms of the breakdown, she said the Ashanti Region had the highest number of registrants with 29,255, representing 16 percent of the total registrants. 

This was followed by the Greater Accra and Eastern regions with 27,264 (14.9 percent) and 19,327 (10.6 percent) respectively.
