THE ELECTORAL COMMISSION CENTRAL REGISTRY (ECCR)

This is the center where information in form of letters, etc, on various subjects is received and arranged for storage in a systematic manner. The Central Registry falls directly under the Human Resource Management Department. 

It is called the Central Registry in order to differentiate it from the other two registries in the Electoral Commission, namely the Election Management Department Registry and Voter Data Registration Department Registry. 

The Electoral Commission Central Registry (ECCR) was started in July 1995 under the Uganda Constitutional Review Commission, with one file titled Constituency Assembly. Since then, the Registry has expanded and contains subject/personal/open and confidential files. 

The Central Registry has recorded and stored documents from the Commission for the Constituent Assembly (CCA), the Interim Electoral Commission (IEC) and the (permanent) Electoral Commission, which are categorized as active, semi-active and inactive records. 

Future plans include establishment of customized records center where all closed files (from the CCA, IEC etc) can be arranged systematically for easy retrieval. 

As the Commission continues with its work, the Central Registry appeals for more co-operation between the (Registry) users and records managers to ensure improvement of registry functions. Back ....
