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.
- Text your voter ID card number to the short code.
- 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.
