Police in Madina have arrested a young man who attempted to take advantage of Friday’s continuous voter registration exercise across the country to double-register.

The man who is said to be in his twenties had shown up at the La-Nkwantanang Madina office of the Electoral Commission to register but when his fingerprints were captured, the biometric device detected he had already registered.

Officials at the office immediately alerted the police personnel who were present at the registration centre to arrest him, Accra-based TV3 reported.

The man has since been taken to the Madina Police Station.

The Electoral Commission (EC) has given prospective voters another opportunity to register ahead of the December polls in its “continuous registration exercise.”

This means prospective voters who were unable to register on August 19 in the continuous registration exercise can do so now on Friday 26th August 2016, and Saturday, August 27, 2016.
