Following an Inter-Party Advisory Committee (IPAC) meeting held moments after the special poll on Thursday December 1, the commission decided that persons who could not cast their ballots could now do so at the original constituencies they registered to vote.

The EC spokesperson, Kofi Dzakpasu, spoke to journalists after the IPAC meeting confirming the information.

The special voting exercise is to afford key individuals and groups who will be playing special roles on election day the opportunity to cast their votes ahead of the main polls so they are not disenfranchised.

But the exercise was marred by missing names of persons supposed to be on the special voters’ list.
