EC introduces new short code for voter verification

The Electoral Commission (EC) has introduced a new service to enable Ghanaians check their details in the voters register via a short message service (SMS) platform.

The short code, 1422, will be activated on Friday, September 18, to Friday, September 25, 2020.

The eight-day exercise would give registered voters the opportunity to authenticate their personal information.

The exercise would also help the EC rid the register of unqualified persons ahead of the December 7 polls.

The EC provisionally registered 16,963,306 people at the end of the biometric voters registration exercise which ended on August 9, this year.


  1. Text your voter ID card number to the short code.
  2. Wait for a response from the EC

Ghanaians who have problems with their data will be required to visit the EC’s district offices to make the necessary changes.
