EC Sets Dates for Updating Village Residents’ Registers

The Electoral Commission appointed Friday 22nd to Monday 25th June 2018, as the period during which willing village residents will register to participate in Administrative Unit (LC I) , and Women Councils and Committees Elections. During this period, eligible and willing residents shall turn up in person at the registration centre within the village of residence to register in order to participate in the elections set for 10th July 2018.

The Commission clarified, however, that this is not a fresh registration of all village residents across the country, but rather a compilation/update exercise, to enable eligible residents of 18 years and above, who are not yet registered in the Residents Register, as well as those who were not registered before, during the exercise conducted in October 2017, to register.

According to the Commission Chairperson, Justice Byabakama Mugenyi Simon, persons who registered during the exercise conducted in October 2017 and were successfully verified as residents will not be required to register again during this compilation/update exercise, because the Commission already has their particulars in the Village Residents and Village Women’s Registers.
