While these critical incidents reported by CODEO observers may have impeded the rights of some Ghanaians to vote, these did not fundamentally undermine the credibility of the overall process.

23.22

CODEO reports that a total of 79 critical incidents reports were received at the opening of polls and during voting across the  country.  The  largest  number  of  incidents  reported  came  from  Ashanti,  Greater  Accra  and Northern Regions. The most frequently reported critical incidents were the suspension of voting, intimidation/harassment, and violation of voting procedures.

23.21

CODEO reports that at 99% of polling stations, only those whose names appeared on the voters’ register were allowed to vote. At 98% of polling stations, only those whose biometric details could be verified were allowed to vote. At 98% of polling stations, only those whose biometric details could be verified were allowed to vote.

CODEO reports that at 12% of polling stations CODEO PVT Observers witnessed, people voted without voter ID cards.

At the same time, at 5% of polling stations, people with voter ID cards were seen being turned away. This may have been for other reasons CODEO is yet to ascertain.

23.18

Coalition of Domestic Election Observers (CODEO) has appealed to all Ghanaians to remain calm and be law abiding as voting is extended to a second day at some polling stations.

The statement stated that “the announcement by the Electoral Commission to extend voting provides an opportunity for those who could not vote to exercise their right to vote. That is essential to ensuring these critical incidents do not undermine the integrity of the process.”

23.17

CODEO reports that Unauthorized persons were present during voting at 8% of polling stations. Incidents of harassment and intimidation were witnessed at 6% of polling stations.
