The Electoral Commission has announced that it is starting voter exhibition for the 2020 Presidential and Parliamentary elections from the 18th of September.
In a release, the Commission said the exhibition will come to a close on the 25th of September.
“In accordance with Regulation 23(1) of C.I 91 of the Public Elections (Registration of Voters) Regulations 2016, the Electoral Commission will exhibit the Provisional Voters Register for inspection by Voters at all Polling Stations throughout the country from Friday the 18th to Friday the 25th of September 2020,” the statement read.
“The week-long exercise will run from 7.00 am to 6.00 pm each day, including Saturday and Sunday. All registered voters are encouraged to visit their Polling Stations with their voter’s ID cards to verify their details.”

“The Public is informed that changes to a person’s details can be requested at the Exhibition centre and effected at the District Office,” says the EC.
The Commission warned that during the exhibition, there will be strict enforcement of Covid-19 protocols.
“Juju” Forces Prez Akufo-Addo To Avoid Unfamiliar Chairs In Savannah Region
President Akufo-Addo was careful to avoid seats that were offered him by traditional leaders in the Savannah Region during a recent tour of the region, Whatsup News has gathered.
According to information picked up by Whatsup News, the President carried along his own gold-plated Presidential Chair during the tour.
Indeed, this strange paranoid antics of the President has been a familiar feature in the past couple of months where he has been spotted on that golden chair even in radio and television studios where he is granting exclusive interviews.
Meanwhile, Chiefs and traditional leaders of the various towns in the region are said to have felt slighted by the President’s behaviour.
Sekou Nkrumah, son of Ghana’s Founding President, Osagyfo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah recently posted the revelation as a quote on his Facebook timeline, saying that he was disappointed in the leadership If the President really disrespected Savannah chiefs by his newfound superstition.
“If the above quote is true and not political propaganda, then I am very disappointed in the NPP leadership,” Sekou wrote.
The quote in question from an unknown source read: “When Nana Addo came to the Savannah region, he carried his chair moving from place to place, from palace to palace which is a direct insult to our chiefs. When he went to Akyem land he left the chair at Jubilee house and used the chairs offered him.”
