The voter must also know the exact date and time of the election, the voter must also know his or her assigned or registered polling station , the voter must properly know how to vote or cast the ballots , the must also know the required documentation needed to be inspected or verified at the polling station , the voter must also know the candidates and their issues bordering on the policies and programmes as captured under manifesto , the voter should be adequately informed by watching and listening to candidates debates ,attending political events and following news about the issues and candidates in the local and national news portals such as on radio ,television ,online and newspapers in order to help secure an enlightened , well-educated and informed electorates or voters towards making rightful and decisive decisions in voting processes for the purposes of securing the sustainable and prosperous development and progress of the voter’s locality and country across the West African Sub-region.
