The EC has announced the deletion of 30,000 names from the voter roll
The Electoral Commission (EC) has announced the deletion of 30,000 names from the voter roll.
The EC disclosed this on Monday, 26 October 2020.
Speaking to Accra-based Citi FM, Spokesperson for the EC Ms Sylvia Annor revealed that the list of names that have been deleted from the 2020 voter roll will be made available at the various polling stations and advised persons whose names have been deleted not to attempt to go and vote on 7 December 2020.
“The exceptions list is made up of registered voters who were found guilty by the district registration review committees at the various district levels. They were challenged probably because they were under 18 years, non Ghanaians, or gave wrong locations. During registration, we went offline, so we did not detect it immediately.
“The names of about 30,000 registered voters have been deleted or expunged from the provisional voters’ register because they are either on the exceptions lists or the multiple lists. The multiple list is made up of names of all those who engaged in double voting during the voter’s registration exercise.
 “The fact that you were able to sail through at the registration centre because the registration officers were not connected to the main system does not mean that you will sail through. They cannot register for some time. The lists will be made available at the polling stations. On election day, there will be the main register, multiple lists, and exception lists. It will be better not to go to the centre if your name is expunged,” the EC spokesperson noted.
They will, therefore, not be able to take part in the December 7 Elections and have further been barred from registering as voters for a period of time.
She told Accra-based Citi FM that the list of affected persons would be provided at the various polling stations to prevent them from voting on December 7.
