NCCE discusses voting processes with Asokwa chiefs



Officials of the National Commission on Civic Education (NCCE) early Tuesday morning took chiefs in the Asokwa Municipality through the voting processes on election day.

Addressing the chiefs, Nat Tweneboah Koduah, Asokwa Municipal Director of NCCE said every voter is entitled to cast one ballot at the polling station.

He noted that once a person checks for his or her name on the voter roll, he or she proceeds to the other EC accredited officers to take two ballots for the parliamentary and presidential election.

Mr Koduah urged the public to scrutinise the ballot papers given to them to see them stamped before they proceed to the respective booths to thumbprint.

Mr Koduah said those who accidentally spoil their ballots are entitled to approach the presiding officer to explain to them the situation.

He noted people who are deemed to have genuine reasons are entitled to have new ballots to cast again once the spoilt ones were not dumped inside the ballot box.

The Asokwa NCCE director asked that persons who enter the polling stations should comport themselves well.

On her part, Sakina Anokyewaah, Programs Officer-NCCE urged the chiefs to ask their subjects to conduct themselves peacefully on voting day.

Nana Fe-Baamoah, Chief of Asokwa asked the NCCE to mount loudspeakers  and educate the public even on voting day.

He said some people still do not know the proper way to cast their ballots.

This, he said occasions the many spoilt ballots at the end of each election  season.

The Chief however promised on behalf of his colleagues to conduct public engagements with their subjects ahead of the polls to enable them cast their votes well.
