EC introduces shortcode to check names on final voters register

1 min read

The Electoral Commission (EC) has announced a shortcode to enable eligible voters to check their names on the final Voters Register.

The USSD code enables registered voters to check their details on all networks free of charge.

“To access their details, registered voters need to dial *711*2020#, on any phone and network, enter their Voter ID card number and the Polling Station Code where they registered. Please note that this information is available on the voter’s Voter Card,” EC Chairperson, Jean Mensa, said Monday, November 30, during a press conference on the final voters register for the December 7, 2020 elections.

The EC Chairperson explained that a valid voter that uses the USSD code will get a response on their phone.

The other option available to a voter to check their name on the final electoral roll is through the Commission’s website – https://registers.ec.gov.gh.

She, therefore, entreated persons who may have issues with their registrations to contact their nearest district offices across the country for immediate remedy.
