Election officials in charge of Tuesday’s Special Voting at Anloga, Keta, Dzodze and Denu have described the performance of the voters’ verification machines as satisfactory.
They were optimistic that the machines would not pose any major challenge during Friday’s presidential and parliamentary elections.
The only challenge during the special voting in those areas were the absence of names of some security personnel on the special voters’ registers, the Ghana News Agency (GNA) was told.
Mr Felix Dabi, the Returning Officer at Denu, said about 25 persons could not find their names in the special voters’ list of 790 personnel.
He said about 500 of the special voters had cast their ballots by 1200 hours.
Mr Emmanuel Odonkor, Aflao and Dzodze Districts Police Commander confirmed a similar situation at Dzodze where 162 security personnel were not on the list of 580 special voters.
At Keta the names of 17 personnel could not be found in the list of 630 voters.
Affected persons contacted declined to comment.
