Include existing voter IDs in eligibility documents – CODEO to EC

The Coalition of Domestic Election Observers (CODEO) has urged the Electoral Commission (EC) to include the existing voter identity (ID) card among the documents individuals can use to establish eligibility to register in the 2020 registration exercise.

In a statement, CODEO said the vast majority of prospective voters in Ghana’s December 2020 polls already possess a voter ID card issued by the Commission which will foster a much more congenial atmosphere for electoral inclusion and peace if they are allowed to use it to register.

CODEO added that it is deeply concerned about the inability of key stakeholders to forge broad consensus over a credible way forward for the compilation of the voter register, having regard to the exceptional circumstances brought upon the nation by the COVID-19 pandemic and the extremely compressed electoral calendar.
