In preparation for the Administrative Units (LC I and II) and Women Councils and Committees Elections, the Electoral Commission will compile a register of residents in each village throughout Uganda from Thursday 26th to Monday 30th October 2017.

The purpose of this registration exercise is to enable all willing village residents to register in order to participate in the elections.

The registration will be conducted from 7:00am until 6:00pm on each of the appointed dates, including weekends.

According to EC chairperson Justice Byabakama Mugenyi Simon, eligible and willing residents shall turn up in person at the registration centre within the village of residence to register.

He says the registration exercise shall cover the compilation of two registers whereby the village residents and village women residents shall be registered in separate register books provided by the Electoral Commission.
