Ghana Card to replace voter IDs - VEEP Bawumia

Vice President, Dr Bawumia, has intimated that in the fullness of time, the Ghana Card will replace the voter identity cards.

If successfully implemented, holders who turn 18 would automatically be added to the voter list; this, he claims, will not only relieve the stress of waiting in line to register for the ID but also save the nation a significant amount of money.

“Very soon you’ll see that our problem with voter registration will disappear.”

“It’s only a matter of time. If not at the next elections, the elections after, because we spend so much on voter registration but one’s unique identifier is determined and you can’t have underage people coming to register and 

“Ghana card will be a good identification document as we’re already seeing so that we sanitize the voter registration system,” he added.

The Ghana Card has become an even more important document; it is used to identify nationality, register business and even for travel.
