Lower cost per vote than 2016 election

The Electoral Commission of Ghana was dedicated to providing equal voting opportunities to all Ghanaians, regardless of their location. To achieve this, they implemented Laxton’s mobile identity registration and verification solution. Despite the increasing cost of elections around the world, the Commission was able to keep costs low for voters during the 2020 Elections. This was achieved by utilising Laxton’s Election Management System, which helped to streamline the voting process and reduce costs per voter.
