The Electoral Commission (EC) has scheduled the special voting exercise for the 2024 general election on Monday, December 2, 2024.

Institutions and individuals eligible for special voting are urged to apply between June 17 and July 1. At a meeting with senior media personnel and top security officials, including representatives from the military, police, Immigration Service, Prisons Service, Customs Division of the Ghana Revenue Authority, and Fire Service, EC Chairperson Jean Mensa clarified that special voting rights are not automatic and must be applied for by qualified individuals.

The special voting will take place across all 275 constituencies, with each voter casting their ballot in their designated constituency as per their voter ID details. Mrs. Mensa, alongside her deputies Samuel Tettey and Dr. Eric Bossman Asare, emphasized that applicants must be registered voters in the constituencies where they intend to vote. Those granted special voting rights will be removed from the regular voting list for the December 7 elections to prevent double voting.

The special voting is governed by Regulation 3(1) of Constitutional Instrument (CI) 127, allowing voters unable to be present at their polling stations on election day due to election duties to apply for special voting status. Eligible voters include staff from the Military, Police, Immigration Service, Customs Division, Prisons Service, Fire Service, polling officers, permanent EC staff, and the media.

Group applications can be submitted by institutions with a list of officers including names, Voter ID numbers, and Polling Station Codes.

Applicants who have lost their Voter ID cards should replace them during the replacement exercise to ensure accurate application details. All applications must be made in person to the Returning Officer.
