To ensure full voter registration for the forthcoming elections in December 2024, the Electoral Commission of Ghana has announced plans to conduct a three-day mop-up voter registration campaign across its district offices starting on August 1.

The EC’s goal to maximize voter turnout was stated in an official letter addressed to the general secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).

“This comes to inform you that the Commission will conduct a mop-up voter registration exercise at all the district offices of the Commission throughout the country.”

“The registration will also be extended to the prison centres. This exercise will take place from Thursday, 1 August to Saturday, 3 August, 2024. The modalities for the exercise will be discussed at an IPAC meeting to be held in due course,” the letter said.

In an attempt to increase voter registration for the approaching elections, the Electoral Commission (EC) extended its 21-day registration period by an additional three days in May.

In addition to the extension that took place at the EC’s 268 district offices throughout Ghana on May 27 and 29, there will be a “mop-up” voter registration push on August 1st, which will enable individuals who were not able to register during the first round to take part.
