The presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr John Dramani
Mahama, has advised members and supporters of the party to verify their names on the
provisional voters register when the Electoral Commission opens it for exhibition at polling
stations in all constituencies from 18th September to 25th September 2020.
Addressing the chiefs and people of Amanten in the Atebubu Amanten constituency to kick
start his three-day tour of the Bono East Region, Mr Mahama said it would be unfortunate
for any eligible voter to be disenfranchised because the person did not verify her or his
name on the voters register during the Electoral Commission’s exhibition of the provisional
“We should use the energy that was exhibited during the voter registration exercise for the
exhibition exercise because it might happen that your name was not captured or was spelt
wrongly, and the needed correction will be done to enable you take part in the elections,”
Mr Mahama, therefore, urged all those who registered during the new voter registration
exercise to visit their polling stations in all constituencies throughout the country with their
new voter ID cards to check their names on the new voter rolls.
The checking of names in the voters register by members and supporters of the NDC, Mr
Mahama said, is an important step in the party’s forward march to victory in December
