Joy News' Volta Region Correspondent, Ivy Setordjie, speaks to voters who have cast their ballot and are excited.
Voting starts at some polling stations
Voting has begun at most polling stations across the country although the event has been marked by setbacks at other centres.
At the Papa House polling station at the KEEA Constituency in Cape Coast, a ballot box that had an inscription “Election 2012” created some agitation among electorates. The voters raised concern about the wrong inscription, suggesting it could compromise the election results. They requested the EC to change the boxes or remove the wrong inscription. EC officials resolved not to use those ballot boxes, reports Joseph Ackah-Blay. Voting has started at the polling station.
Voting delayed at Bantama Sub-metro Office B polling centre because of a cracked presidential ballot box.
