The Electoral Commission (EC) has registered 38,129 people who turned 18 years this year during the Voters Registration Exercise in the Upper West Region, Mr. Mahama Yahaya, Regional Director of EC has said.

He said the Wa Municipality registered the highest figure of 7,595 voters and with 22 challenged cases while the rest of the districts recorded no challenged cases.

The Wa West District registered 4,258 voters, Wa East District 3,397 voters and Nadowli District 4,987 voters.

Others are Jirapa District, 4,101, Lawra District 6,111, Sissala West District 2,324, Sissala East District 2,974 and Lambussie/Karni District 2,382 voters.

Mr Yahaya, in an interview with the Ghana News Agency in Wa on Monday, described the registration exercise as successful attributing it to the non- interference by politicians.

He said the long queues that were experienced in 2008 during the same exercise were absent, he said, adding: “People are now awakening on to their civic rights and responsibilities and so the Electoral Commission’s campaign messages were received with great attention”.

Mr Yahaya announced that the Voters Register would be exhibited next month and urged all voters who had registered to visit their polling stations to cross-check their names.

This would offer the various voters the opportunity to know where they would be casting their ballots during the District Assembly Elections, he said.

“I want to remind voters that though registration was done at the Electoral Area level, voting would be done at the various polling stations,” Mr Yahaya explained.
