The Electoral Commission announces for the information of the general public that the Limited Voters Registration Exercise will now take place from “Monday, 17th June, 2019 to Sunday 7th July, 2019.”
This follows the dismissal of a motion for interlocutory injunction seeking to restrain the Commission from undertaking the scheduled exercise.
The registration will take place in all District Offices of the Commission and designated Electoral Areas/centres throughout the country.
Registration will start from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on each day, and will include weekends.
Prospective applicants are therefore advised to go to any of the registration centres with any of the following documents as proof of eligibility.
- A valid Driver’s license
- A Ghanaian passport
iii. National Identification card
- An old Non Biometric Voters ID Card. (This is for applicants who registered before the 2012 Voters Registration Exercise.

Due to a court injunction, the Electoral Commission had suspended indefinitely the limited voter registration exercise, which was scheduled to begin from Friday, June 7 to Thursday, July 27 in all its district offices and 1,573 selected electoral areas the across the country.
Mr Samuel Tettey, the EC Deputy Chairman in-charge of Operations said the 1,573 selected electoral areas, which used biometric verification registration (BVR) kits for the exercise, constituted about 25 per cent of the electoral areas nationwide.
He said the suspension of the exercise was due to a pending Court injunction seeking to restrain the Commission from holding the limited voter registration exercise.
