The activities will take place in EC district offices, selected electoral areas, and public universities.

It’s important to note that it is a criminal offence for a guarantor to vouch for more than 10 people, non-Ghanaians, and individuals who are under 18 years of age.

In preparation for the December 2024 polls, the EC had previously disclosed plans to update the voter register.

This update is set to start on May 7 and conclude on May 27, 2024. The goal is to ensure that newly eligible voters, specifically those who have recently turned 18, can be added to the voter register.
