About 2,794 registered voters are expected to cast their votes at the Calvary Presby polling station. At the time, 821 registered voters had cast their votes.

In total 173,619 registered voters are expected to vote in the Dome-Kwabenya Constituency.

Speaking after voting, Prof Mike Oquaye expressed his satisfaction about the voting process so far.

"This is how civilised people do their things. It tells you the level of development here in Ghana. I would like us to all stop worrying about pessimist things and look at the good sides. We are making progress. When we go like this, very soon America, the West and others would come and become election observers here because we are doing it right. I am very happy", he said.
