Ghana: Absentee 'special voters' can't vote on Friday

The Tema Metropolitan Director of the Electoral Commission, Mr Gabriel Manu, has advised that electorates who were due to vote in last Tuesday’s special exercise and for that reason had their names in the special voters register but did not turn up to cast their votes, cannot vote during the general elections because their names have been deleted from the main register.
 

Mr. Manu disclosed that during the special voting exercise, out of a total of 570 names in Tema East, 458 cast their votes, Tema West had 606 people voting, out of the 720 registered voters in the special register.
 

Tema Central Constituency had 306 votes cast from the registered 357, while out of the 533 security officials in the Kpone-Katamanso special voters register, 386 cast their votes.
 

He said however that a total of 513 security officials in the Tema Metropolis were unable to vote during Tuesday’s special voting as their names were missing from the compiled register.
