Biometric Registration

The Western Regional Directorate of the Electoral Commission of Ghana has commenced a two-day test run on the Biometric Voter Registration kit (BVRK) to ascertain its readiness for the December general elections.

The exercise, a pilot project, will tease out any challenges on the new machines procured by the EC for a prompt resolution to avoid any hiccups during the actual electioneering process.

A visit by the Ghana News Agency to the Regional office of the EC around 0930 hours showed how individuals and party faithful were eager to test on the quality of response from the biometric kit.

Officials spent not more than eight minutes on each individual during the time of visit, with already established queues waiting for their turn.

Mrs Angelina Tagoe, the Regional Director of the EC was glad about the response from the general public to help in deepening Democratic discourse of the country by massively participating in the exercise.

She said, “So far, so good”, work is progressively going on as anticipated.
