Special voting: 127,394 media, security personnel to cast ballots

Over 120, 000 Ghanaians are heading to the polling stations across the country on Thursday to cast their votes in the special voting exercise.

A total of 127,394 voters, comprised of persons who have duties to perform on the main election day on December 7; Electoral Commission (EC) officials, security personnel and journalists, will cast their ballots today.

Ghanaians will, however, have to wait until after the main election for the results of the Special Voting after a ruling by the Supreme Court.

Despite concern from some sections of the public, the EC has said that it is ready for the special voting polls.

Director of Electoral Services at the EC, Samuel Tettey, who disclosed this at a press conference on Wednesday, said materials and centres for this special voting session, have been distinctly marked from the materials; and polling stations for the general elections on December 7, to ensure transparency in the process.

He noted that, all materials for the exercise have already been dispatched.

Samuel Tetteh also added that the Special voters will only be able to vote in the constituencies they registered in, unless they transferred their votes.

There will be at least one polling station in each of the 275 constituencies across the country.
