The Electoral Commission will later today begin its month-long nationwide voter registration exercise towards the compilation of a new electoral roll for the December general elections.

This is despite months of agitation by the opposition NDC and other CSOs.

The exercise will be held in some 6788 clusters made up of five registration centers each across the country.

It will be conducted in 5 phases, each phase spanning 6 days with additional days for mop-up.

The commission assures it will maintain strict health protocols to protect registrants against the deadly COVID -19 disease.

Meanwhile, the Election Management Body is set to hold a crucial meeting on Wednesday to consider modalities for the registration of Ghanaians living abroad
