EC outlines measures to minimise rejected ballots

The Electoral Commission (EC) has outlined measures to reduce the incidence of rejected ballots in this year’s general election.

Mrs Charlotte Osei, the EC Chairperson said the colour of the indelible ink used to mark a voter’s finger would be different from the ink on the thumbprint pad.

She explained that this was to help reduce the confusion caused by finger stains on the ballot paper resulting in the rejection of ballot papers.

Speaking in Accra at the EC’s final press briefing before the Wednesday general election, Mrs Osei said the ballot paper design had also been improved.

She said the boxes were larger and the black lines in between the candidate’s pictures were thicker to minimise incidents of thumb prints appearing in more than one box and causing the rejection of the ballot.
