Social media campaign on Ghana’s biometric registration launched

BloggingGhana, an NGO, has launched an online and offline campaign to assist eligible Ghanaians to register in the on-going biometric voters registration exercise which started last Saturday, March 24.

The campaign, titled: “iRegistered”, aims to woo eligible Ghaniaans to visit their local registration centres and register, since it is not a continuous exercise.

It forms part of activities for the organisation’s Ghana Decides – A BloGh Election Project, according to a release issued in Accra on Monday by Maame Aba Daisie, Social Media Coordinator, Ghana Decides – A BloGh Election Project.

The release said the Electoral Commission (EC) estimated that 12 million Ghanians were eligible to register for Election 2012.

It explained that eligible Ghanians could participate in the campaign through four simple steps; reading for more information on the registration on its blog, and on government’s website

“All Ghanaians are being urged to read, be informed and share this information with family, friends and other people especially the less privileged in their communities.”

The release asked all Ghanians to tweet or post a Facebook or Google update telling their friends and the world about the registration exercise and the need to register with the hash tags iRegistered, BVR and GhanaDecides.

Project Leader, Kinna Likimani said the campaign would focus on encouraging the youth, especially young women and potential first-time voters to register.
