The Electoral Commission of Ghana has indicated it will be organizing a mop-up voter registration exercise in August ahead of Ghana’s December 7, 2024 presidential and parliamentary elections.

According to the Commission, the exercise will take place from August 1 to August 3, 2024.

Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Jean Mensa, said the mop-up exercise is to afford people who turned 18 after the limited voter registration and those who could not take part in the registration, the opportunity to register for the December polls.

“I would like to put on record that the mop-up of the voter registration exercise will take place from August 1–3, 2024, and it is to afford persons who turned 18 after May 29 or persons who have not previously registered the opportunity to get onto our register; this goes to persons who are eligible,” according to her.

She made this known when the Election Security Taskforce, led by Ghana’s Inspector General of Police Dr. George Akuffo Dampare, visited the Electoral Commission office in Accra to brief the commission on the election security performance in the first half of 2024.

During the visit, Madam Mensa revealed that the Commission will undertake a voter exhibition from August 20 to August 27.
