In March 2011, Ugandans are set to go the polls yet again. Given previous experiences enumerated above, the 2011 Presidential, Parliamentary and Local Government elections are likely to be conducted against a background of mixed expectations of hope and fear. However, the forthcoming poll is particularly significant because it will be the second election since the return to a multi party political system that had hitherto been in limbo for more then two decades. Uganda has made on the path to fully democratic governance.
The UGMP aptly notes that citizen action or inaction has significant consequences for democracy and good governance.

The efforts of civil society organizations are clearly outstripped by the enormity of the challenges listed above. Given that democracy governance is a collective and long-term project, civil society needs to galvanize support as it gradually strengthens its contribution. Given its nascent status, investment in various areas, not least raising voter confidence in electoral politics, the performance of the electoral commission, institutional strengthens for political parties, as well as civic education.
