The Electoral Commission of Ghana (EC) has introduced a virtual platform where voters can take part in the exhibition exercise which started today, September 18, 2020.

The exhibition exercise which will last for a week and is taking place at all 33,367 centres across the country.

The short for checking your details is 1422 and it will cost 30 pesewas to use the platform.

This was revealed by the Chairperson of the Commission, Jean Mensah.

“The Commission will deploy a mobile telephony system also known as the SMS to allow prospective voters check their details using their mobile phones for a fee of 30 pesewas.

“Prospective voters may access this system by simply texting his or her voters ID card number to 1422 and immediately, his or her details will pop up. With this simple process a voter with the click of the button can obtain the following details; his or name, voters ID card number, age, gender, polling station code, polling station name, district and region.”

Meanwhile, EC Chair has explained that the amount being charged is not to enrich the Commission as the charges go directly to the telecommunications network for their services rendered.
