EC remedies 88,000 duplicate voter ID numbers in register

The Electoral Commission (EC) says all duplicate voter identification numbers that were detected during the just-ended voter registration exercise have been “remedied” and the affected applicants have been re-issued new numbers.

According to the Chairperson of the Commission, Mrs Jean Mensa, the duplicates occurred because the registration kits were offline hence all voter ID numbers were issued independently.

She said 88,000 duplicates were detected when the national data came together online and that the Commission was in the process of handing over the new ID cards with the new numbers to the affected voters.

Addressing a press conference in Accra on Monday, September 28, Mrs Mensa said political parties and their agents would be invited to monitor the re-issuance of the said duplicate ID cards.
