The Electoral Commission (EC) says it will pilot the newly acquired biometric machines during the exhibition of the provisional voters register to guarantee its readiness for the December 7 Presidential and Parliamentary elections.

The Greater Accra Regional Director of the EC, Kwame Amoah, who disclosed this to Radio Ghana, said 15 percent of selected polling stations in each district will be designated for the pre-testing of the new biometric devices, to identify the challenges and resolve them.

“We are going to have piloting of biometric device that would be used during the elections at some of the selected centres because it’s going to be a new machine we’re going to roll and we have selected about 15 percent of the centres in each district to test these devices.”

Meanwhile, as part of measures to ensure that people do not mass-up at the voter exhibition centers when the provisional register is displayed from 18th to 25th September, the EC says it will introduce an electronic shortcode 1422 to help the electorate to check their details.

Per the instructions, the electorate will be required to send their voter’s identification card number to the short code 1422 on all networks and their details would pop up.

EC says those with issues will be required to visit their district offices for the corrections to be effected if any.
