On average , if we get a good turnout, we should be looking at 38 people per registration centre per day,” she said.
The exercise, which is one of the major events ahead of the elections on November 7, seeks to register persons who have turned 18, as well as first-time voters.
All is set for the exercise Mrs. Osei said the commission is fully prepared for the exercise and has dispatched the needed logistics across the country.
“We are pretty well prepared and we are confident that it will be successful. We have deliberately structured it so that during the two week period, we’ve captured about three weekends so that people who have to go to work, it gives them as much time as possible over the weekend and it won’t be affected by people having to go to work.”
While expressing the hope that people will patronize the registration centres early, she reiterated that the exercise is only open to those who could not, and did not, register in the last open registration, adding that it is not an avenue for already registered voters to replace lost voter ID Cards, or to transfer vote from one constituency to another.
