Voters raise concern over positioning of voting booth

Some voters have expressed concerns with the positioning of polling booths at some polling stations.

The voters are demanding that the polling booths be placed in an open area where it will be visible for everyone to see whoever was in the booth.

Voters argued the booth should be placed in the full glare of the public to check miscreants who may want to do anything illegal by soiling ballot papers or voting twice or smuggling illegal materials into the box.

They also want the booths positioned in a manner that will safeguard the secrecy of their vote. Some voters were seen in queues as early as midnight. Some of them were also holding queue spots for their family members.

There are seven main candidates in the presidential race including President John Mahama of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC), who is seeking re-election for a second and final four-year term.

His main contender in the race is Nana Akufo-Addo of the main opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), who is having a third go at the presidency.

The rest are former First Lady Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings of the National Democratic Party (NDP), Ivor Greenstreet of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), Dr Edward Mahama of the People’s National Convention (PNC), Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP) and independent candidate Jacob Osei Yeboah.
