The Electoral Commission has announced that applicants who are 50 years and above, health workers and security personnel can register for their voters ID card at any of its district offices from Saturday July 25, 2020.

“Beginning Saturday 25th July 2020, all applicants who are 50 years and above can visit any of the EC’s District Offices across the country to register for their Voters ID Card,” the EC indicated in a statement.

“The list has also been extended to include health workers and all categories of security personnel, once they are able to show proof of identification,” the EC added.

The EC’s initially registration requirements only allowed applicants of 60 years and above, pregnant women, as well as lactating mothers and persons with disability to register at its district offices.

This new arrangement by the EC is to ensure for more specialized groups of citizens to participate in the ongoing registration exercise.

The EC, however, urged people in the newly listed groups to take advantage of the opportunity to get registered.
