Allow eligible students to register – GES

The Management of Ghana Education Service (GES) has asked heads of second-cycle institutions to allow eligible students to visit their preferred polling stations in order to have their names registered as voters.

A statement by the GES, signed by the Head of Public Relations Unit, Reverend Jonathan Bettey asked heads of schools to take notes on all students, especially boarders, as they leave the school premises to participate in the ongoing limited voter registration by the Electoral Commission.

“Management entreats students, teachers and members of the public to comport themselves well during this important national exercise,” the statement said.

All who have turned 18 years and above or older but who have not been able to register as voters in the past can do so from April 28 to May 8, 2016, during which time the EC estimates that 1.2 million voters would be registered.
