According to a source at the EC, with that provisional figure, the EC was on course to achieving a successful biometric voters registration, which ends on May 5, 2012.

The EC projected to register 13 million voters before the beginning of the compilation of the biometric voters roll.

Before the 2008 elections, the number of registered voters on the roll was 12.5 million, of which over nine million exercised their franchise in the elections of that year.

Currently, the number of people involved in multiple registration stands at 4,000.

The Chairman of the EC, Dr Kwadwo Afari-Gyan, had made it explictly clear before the beginning of the exercise that any prospective voter who registered more than once would not have his name in the electoral roll for five years.

Additionally, the offender would have his or her name deleted from the roll, be fined, sentenced to a jail term or both.
