The Electoral Commission (EC) has asked security personnel and other individuals who could not find their names on the special voters list to visit the District offices of the EC for the discrepancies to be corrected.

Some electorates who are partaking in the special voting exercise have indicated that their names are not in the register.

In Klottey-Korle Constituency in the Greater Accra Region, some of them said that they had been asked to go to their actual constituencies they registered in to vote.

In Nima, in the Greater Accra Region, the electoral process was halted following confusion at the polling centre due to some missing names in the voters’ register.

A similar situation happened in Agona Swedru in the Central Region, where two police officers have been turned away because their names were not on the list.

Many people have raised questions about what might happen during the general elections on December 7 which is barely a week away.

But commenting on the matter, Eric Dzapkasu, the head of Communication at the EC said his outfit compiled the special voters list based on the information it received from the various institutions.

According to him, the data input could be the problem and the names may have been switched.

He pleaded with aggrieved parties to visit the District offices of the EC for now, while investigations continue on the way forward.
