EC to give out chits to crowd at registration centres

The Electoral Commission (EC) has announced plans to introduce queue management systems to check and control crowd in the various registration centres in the ongoing voter’s registration exercise.

The electoral body through a statement said they will be giving out chits to applicants to regulate the numbers at registration centres at any point in time.

This is coming days after the Ghana Medical Association (GMA), political parties and other individuals bemoaned the lack of adherence to physical distancing at registration centres

The statement from the EC said: “To further limit and minimin overcrowding, the Commission has introduced the Queue Management System that ensures that Applicants are provided with chits. This will ensure that Applicants only visit the centres at the times they are allotted.

“We believe that this will help reduce the overcrowding and queue at the Registration Centres. We count on the general public to assist the Commission to work to maintain law and order at all the Registration Centres,” the commission added.
