The Electoral Commission has said in a statement that it has removed its officers who are involved in tampering of the Presidential Ballot papers.
Videos and photos have been circulating of ballot papers that are being given to voters without the photo and voting area of the NPP candidate President Akufo-Addo.
The ballot paper is torn after him which means he is removed from the ballot paper and the NDC’s candidate John Mahama then becomes the first candidate on a ballot paper with 11 instead of 12 presidential candidates.
In a statement from the EC, the commission acknowledged that it was indeed happening and so far they have confirmed the incidents from Awutu Senya West and Bawku Central constituencies.
The statement said the Ballot Paper Issuer officers involved have been removed from their posts.
“The General Public is informed that the Presidential ballot paper for the 2020 General Election has twelve candidates,” the statement said.
“For a correctly thumb printed ballot to be considered valid and counted, all the Presidential candidates must be on the ballot paper,” it added.
Make sure your ballot paper has all the 12 Presidential candidates and it is stamped at the back before you head to the voting booth to cast your ballot.
