The Electoral Commission of Ghana says it will be adopting a 'cluster system' to ensure a smooth running of the upcoming voters' registration exercise.

The compilation of the new register which is now scheduled for the last week of June will take place in over 33,000 polling stations.

Giving further details during a one-on-one interview on Peace FM's morning show 'Kokrokoo', Samuel Tetteh, a Deputy Chairperson of the EC in-Charge of Operations said all 33,367 polling stations will serve as registration centres.

"This will prevent a lot of people gathering at one place," he said.

Cluster system

Explaining how the cluster system works, he said: "This is where in a district with 50 polling stations, 5 will form one cluster which means there will be 10 clusters."

According to him, each cluster will receive BVR kits.


Mr Tetteh also disclosed that "every logistic needed for the exercise has been procured".
