The officers, both men and women, expressed their disappointment as presiding officers directed them to check from other centres.

At the Community One police station centre designated for the Tema East constituency, more than 10 affected officers told the Ghana News Agency at about 0900 hours that they were surprised their names were missing from the list.

One of the officers said she was a registered voter in Tema West and therefore went to that centre to cast her vote only to told that her name could not found.

She added that officials there directed her to Tema East where she was asked again to go back to Tema West because that was her original constituency.

Mr Jerry Ankomah, Presiding Officer for the Tema East Constituency on his part, said those affected should return to the constituency they registered in to vote on December 7.

Mr Ankomah added that the superiors of the officers may not have indicated that they wanted to vote in the constituency and therefore their names could be at their original centres.

The affected officers were however not happy with his explanation stating that the original list from their command should have been brought to the centres with the register.

They also lamented that most of them would be in duty outside their constituencies on December 7th and therefore would be unjustly disenfranchised.

The situation was not different at Tema West, Tema Central, Ningo-Prampram, and Kpone-Katamanso centres.

Apart from the “missing names” challenges, the special voting exercise was generally peaceful and smooth in the various constituencies.

A total of 652 are on the special voting list for Tema East, 458 for Tema Central, 525 for Kpone-Katamanso, 311 for Ningo-Prampram and 880 for Tema West.
