She said the major challenge encountered during the first phase was crowding at the registration centres and the refusal of some registrants to adhere to the social distancing protocols put in place by the EC. This she said, occasioned the introduction of the chit system to reduce crowding.

On the registration of heavily pregnant women, aged, People With Disability and other vulnerable persons, Mrs Tagoe noted that it also going on smoothly at the various district offices of the EC.
