As the 2021 General Election draws closer, the Electoral Commission (EC) is streamlining preparation for all Ugandans to participate in the exercise. The EC has now set a new deadline for the update of the National Voters Register.
According to EC, the exercise during which voters will ascertain details about their polling stations will now start on 21st November 2019 and end on 11th December 2019. The Commission had earlier set November 2019 and January 2020 for the general update of the National Voters Register.
However, while addressing a press conference on Wednesday, Justice Simon Byabakama, the Electoral Commission chairperson, said that “The Commission has concluded with demarcation of polling stations and will now embark on updating the register.”
He said that all eligible voters should check at the designated polling stations to ensure that their names appear on the Voters lists.
