Some Ghanaians who turned up to register for the new voter ID cards are not adhering to the social distancing measure.

A visit to some centres on the first day of the voter registration exercise disclosed that much has not been done to ensure people adhere to the protocol.

Ahead of the exercise the Electoral Commission assured Ghanaians that stringent measures have been put in place to ensure compliance to the protocols.

ABC News observed that in some centres lots of people turned up to register making it difficult to follow the social distancing protocols in the queues formed.

At the Divine Grace School in Kasoa, the center was overcrowded as registrants queued to get their names in the new electoral roll.

Meanwhile, attempts by ABC News team to get registration officials to comment on the situation proved futile as they remained tight-lipped on the matter.

The situation was not different from other centers that were visited in the nations capital.
