By on

CHARLOTTE 10The Electoral Commission has verified over one million registered voters by the biometric verification devices (BVDs) from all exhibition centres across the country in three days.

A statement signed and issued in Accra by Mr Eric Kofi Dzakpasu, Head of Communications explained that at the close of the third day of the exercise, the total number of voters verified was 1,003,812.

It said the 2016 Voters’ Register Exhibition exercise which started on Monday July 18, 2016 was in its forth day and that reports from all 29,000 centres across the country show apart from the lower than expected response and that the exercise was progressing smoothly.

It explained the Commission has deployed adequate personnel and equipment to ensure that all registered voters spend as little time as possible at the various centres to check their details and get their fingerprints verified.

“We encourage every registered voter who has not yet done so, to take part in this all important exercise in order to avoid polling-day inconveniences. We urge the political stakeholders to call on their supporters, sympathisers and their friends and families to go out and get verified.”

“We also call on the media to use your platforms to encourage all potential voters to visit their polling stations to get verified to vote,” the statement added
