The Electoral Commission (EC) of Ghana is constitutionally mandated to continuously register all eligible Ghanaian citizens aged 18 years and over who had not previously registered to participate in voting exercises. In line with this mandate, the commission conducted the 2023 limited voter registration exercise from 12 September to 2 October, 2023, across all its 268 district offices nationwide. All key stakeholders, including political parties, civil society organisations (CSOs), government agencies etc., participated in the process. Good Governance Africa-West Africa Regional Office (GGA-WARO ) also participated in the process, monitoring the limited voter registration exercise in selected centres across the country. The monitoring exercise took place over two days (19–20 September 2023) in four selected locations in Ghana, with a focus on transparency, inclusiveness and efficiency of the process. The team also observed the registration exercise via media reporting (both print and social media).
