The limited voters registration exercise at Wamfie, the capital of the Dormaa East District, has witnessed an impressive turn out, with several prospective voters trooping into the various centres to register.

Prospective voters, particularly, those whose eligibility were challenged and doubted were seen filing into the various registration centres with guarantors to help them to register.

The registration centres visited include the Wamfie Magistrate Court, Wamfie Methodist Primary, Wamanafo Sabikrom, Wamanafo Ampenkro, Dormaa Akwamu at the frontage of chief’s palace, Dormaa Akwamu Roman Catholic Primary.

As at 1100 hrs 11 people had been registered at the Akontanim Methodist centre, while 22 others were in with their guarantors to register at the Wamfie Methodist Primary centre.

The registration officer, Mr Joe Mensah said there were no complaints from any quarters at the centre.
