The Electoral Commission (EC) says it has no intention to use the Ghana Card as a source of identification for the upcoming 2024 general elections.
According to the EC, it would continue to issue the voters identification cards which would be used for the elections.
The Deputy Chairman of the EC, Dr Eric Bossman Asare, clarifying the issue in an interview with the Daily Graphic corrected what he described as misconceptions indicating that the EC intended to use the Ghana Card as the only source of identification.
Hence, a new register is eminent said “We are not going to use the Ghana Card for voting. No we are not going to use it for voting. The Ghana Card is only for registration as a new voter and when you register, we will issue you with our voter’s card. So let’s encourage our children from 16 years to go for their Ghana Card so that by 2024, when that child is 18 before 60 days to the elections, he or she can walk to our district office or constituency and register for his or her voter’s ID.”
