The Electoral Commission (EC) has outlined some guidelines on the upcoming voter exhibition exercise.
The Electoral Commission will begin the voter register exhibition exercise on September 18 and end on September 25, 2020.
The EC was able to register atleast 16.9 million voters with over 30,000 voters delineated onto an exception list.
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.
Addressing the media on September 17, the Chairperson of the EC Jean Mensa said they will enforce full compliance of the COVID-19 protocols.
She also said the excercise will begin from 7:00am to 6:00pm and it includes Saturdays and Sundays.
Ms Mensa also added that the exercise is important because the law recognizes the need for every individual to check and verify their details to ensure the necessary corrections are made before it is certified.
She said this affords each voter the opportunity to check if he or she is actually included in the register.
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.
Requests that could be made at the Exhibition Centres include:
Inclusion of omitted names
Objection to names of deceased voters on the register
Replacement of poor quality or damaged voter ID cards.
Change of names
Change of wrong registration Centre codes
Amendments to registration details as a result of clerical error.
