Here Are The 8 Duties Of A Ghanaian Voter

A man casts his vote at a polling station during presidential elections in Accra December 7, 2012. Ghana extended voting in its presidential election into a second day, officials said on Friday, after a rash of technical problems prevented thousands of people in the West African state from casting their ballots on time. The decision was broadly accepted by political parties and voters, who hoped the poll would entrench Ghana's reputation as a bulwark of democracy and progress in a region better known for civil wars, coups and corruption.
