Police arrest two for attempting double voter registration in Koforidua

By Majesty 2 Min Read

Two students were detained by the police in cooperation with the New Juaben South Municipal Electoral Commission for trying to register for a voter identity card twice during the 2024 Limited Voter Registration period. 

Two students, a male and a girl, were detained for trying to register for the voter ID card a second time, according to Mr. Kofi Asante-Owusu, the New Juaben South Municipal Registration Supervisor for the 2024 Limited Voter Registration. 

Compared to the manual techniques employed in previous years, he claimed that online registration made it simple to identify such attempts. He added that 658 people had registered so far, despite internet issues interfering with the registration process.

Twelve officials, two of whom were stationed, one of whom was mobile, and two of whom were technicians, were reportedly recruited to supervise the registration process. 

Three registration officers, two laminators, two registration supervisors, and three data entry clerks made comprised the two teams and the mobile team. 

Mr. Asante-Owusu claims that because registrants behaved well and followed the guidelines for registering, the process was simple and efficient. 

Akuapim South Municipality’s 2024 Registration Supervisor and Electoral Officer, Mr. Benjamin Amankwah, reported that 238 people registered between May 7 and May 9, 2024. 

He claimed that the online registration system experienced disruptions owing to network issues throughout the first three days, making them difficult. 

The Ghana News Agency was unable to get information on the hiring of officers for the 2024 Voter Identification registration, nor the total number of registrants in the region from the Eastern Regional Electoral Commission between May 7 and May 9, 2024. 

However, more recent reports suggested that the system’s early problems had been resolved, so there’s hope that registration processes will continue unhindered in the coming days.
