Building a community of Youth First Time Voters offers an excellent platform to inspire and ignite the pride as a First Time Voter to participate in Ghana's electoral and political processes
Youth First Time Voters require adequate, unbiased and credible electoral information that is youth and disability friendly and accessible at each stage of the electoral cycle.
When voters are familiar with the basic tenants of political parties and identify with their aspiring candidates; especially their young parliamentary candidates aged below 35-years, they are able to make informed decisions at the polls
Being an informed voter allows the youth to select candidates based on policies that are aligned to their aspirations. The way, they learn and appreciate the issues during elections, without relying on party propaganda or media coverage.
In ensuring effective participation of Youth First Time Voters in the 2020 polls, it is important to decode and present pre-voting information from the Electoral Commission into youth and disability friendly formats aimed at inspiring them to seize the moment to vote
