The Electoral Commission (EC) of Ghana has made special arrangements for certain groups of people to register for the new voter ID cards at their district offices.

Persons Living With Disabilities (PLWDs), pregnant and lactating mothers, as well as persons who are 60 years and above, can have their registrations at the EC offices.

The registration for eligible people within these categories of people will take place nationwide from July 2 to August 6 from 7 am to 6 pm each day.

“Applicants who wish to go to the district offices for their registration can download and print the Registration Form 1A and Guarantees Form in colour (where necessary) from the Electoral Commission’s website at www.ec.gov.gh, have their details filled and present them to the registration team to facilitate the registration process,” Acting Director of Public Affairs at the EC, Mrs Sylvia Annoh said in a statement issued on Friday.

Following a green light by the Supreme Court on Thursday for the EC to proceed with the registration, the old voter’s ID and birth certificates cannot be used as proof of citizenship.

Applicants for the new cards are to present a valid passport or a Ghana Card to prove their eligibility to register.

In the absence of those documents, the registrant must provide two guarantors.

Mass registration will commence on Tuesday, June 30, across all the 16 regions in five phases.
