The Chief Executive of the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA), Hon. Elizabeth Naa Kwatsoe Tawiah Sackey has paid a working visit to some voter ID registration centers to monitor the ongoing enrolment of new voters onto the electoral register ahead of the December 19 District Level Elections.
The Mayor’s visit forms part of efforts to ignite civic participation and emphasize the importance of the upcoming elections.
The Limited Voter Registration Exercise, which is in accordance with Article 45 of the 1992 Constitution, is taking place at the 268 District Offices of the Electoral Commission – a departure from the old system where limited registration exercises were done at the electoral areas.
The 21-day exercise would afford Ghanaians who have attained the voting age of 18 years since the last registration in 2020 and others who are more than 18 years old but could not register during the last registration exercise, to do so.
The Mayor, accompanied by city officials, including the Coordinating Director, Mr. Douglas Annoful made their first stop at the Okaikoi Sub-Metropolitan District (Okaikwei Constituency) which covers the bustling industrial area of the metropolis where she engaged prospective registrants encouraging residents to register and make their voices heard during the upcoming elections.
