Electoral Commission Starts Updating National Voters’ Register Ahead Of Local Government Councils By-Elections

The Electoral Commission will conduct an update of the National Voters’ Register from 22nd– 26th October 2021 in preparation for the conduct of by-elections for Local Government Councils, in electoral areas across the country, where vacancies exist.

According to Paul Bukenya, the Electoral Commission Acting Spokesperson, the update exercise will be conducted at update stations within each parish/ward in the respective electoral areas, starting at 8:00am till 6:00pm, on each of the appointed dates, including weekends.

The purpose of the update exercise, he says, is to enable all new eligible applicants to register as voters; conduct transfer of voters who wish to transfer to new voting locations; and enable voters to confirm that their photographs match their particulars.

One of the prominent LC by-elections is the  Kayunga Local Council V (LCV), whose  polling date is December 16, 2021, according to EC.

The Kayunga district LCV seat fell vacant after LCV Chairman Ffefeka Sserubugo died on June 16, 2021.
