Ghana: Electoral Commission Debuts Digital Queue Management To Reduce Congestion At Registration Centres


Aug. 5, 2020, 1:59 p.m.

The Electoral Commission of Ghana (EC) has introduced a new digital tool to enable voters to book slots in a queue from the comfort of their homes.

The move is aimed at reducing congestion at registration centres, and to promote compliance with social distancing rules. It is also to ensure the safety of both officials and voters.

The information was released on the EC’s Twitter page last week.

To secure a spot in a queue digitally, voters can use the Unstructured Supplementary Service Data (USSD) option by:

  1. Dialling *769#
  2. Selecting the event management option
  3. Entering the registering centre code and waiting for a text message with all details of the “priority queue” at the local registration centre

Another alternative is to visit to register for an account and follow the same guidelines as that of the USSD option.

While the manual registration system is still open, The EC hopes voters will go digital.
