The Electoral Commission (EC) has disclosed that special voting for the 2024 presidential and parliamentary elections will take place on Monday, December 2, 2024, throughout the country.
The exercise would be held at specified polling locations across the 276 constituencies.
The Commission will open registration for applicants for the special voting between June 17 and July 1, 2024.
Madam Jean Adukwei Mensa, EC Chairperson, disclosed this during a meeting with the Ghana Journalists Association and representatives of the security services in Accra.
The special voting exercise is held for officials who will be performing election-related duties on the main polling day and may be unable to vote.
This includes personnel of the Ghana Armed Forces, National Intelligence Bureau (NIB), National Security, Ghana Immigration Service, Ghana National Fire Service, and Information Services Department.
Others are the Ghana Police Service, Prisons Service, National Ambulance Service, Customs Division of the Ghana Revenue Authority, Ghana Journalists Association, and National Media Commission.
Mrs. Mensa said organizations and individuals wanting to be part of the special voting should apply to the Commission through its Constituency Returning Officers.

Mrs. Mensa said the exercise would enable the Commission to temporarily take out the names of the applicants from the register for the December 07 election. She, however, said the results of the special voting would be declared after the December 07 election.

The EC has also announced that the replacement of Voter ID Cards will commence on Thursday, May 30, and run through Friday, June 14, 2024.
This replacement service is intended for individuals who have lost their Voter ID Cards for the upcoming December 7, general elections.
In a statement issued on Tuesday, May 28, the EC informed all voters wishing to replace their missing Voter ID Cards to make a payment of GHC10 for the replacement using the shortcode *222*1067#.
The Commission further instructed applicants to provide the reference code received after payment to the District Officer to facilitate the replacement of their cards.
