Special voting underway

Over one hundred thousand Ghanaians will today head to designated polling stations in Ghana to cast their ballot in a Special Voting exercise ahead of the main polls next week.

The special Voting is taking place in some 275 polling stations across the country.

Meanwhile, there have been concerns over the list realesed for the exercise by the electoral commission.

In the Volta and Northern regions, some security personnel have complained of missing names, among others. The EC is yet to comment on such concerns.

Special voting is a special dispensation under the electoral laws that allows registered voters who will not be able to present themselves at their polling stations on voting day as a result of the roles they will play in the elections to vote on a date before the rest of the electorate vote on the date set for the elections.

The category of people who are allowed to do special voting are security personnel, officials of the EC and journalists.
