CCEDU, which sent a team to monitor the electoral process in Butebo, also discovered that the voters are not bothered about crosschecking the displayed voters' register.
“The CCEDU survey revealed low enthusiasm of voters turning up to inspect the voters register.  For instance at Yakobo's Mango Tree Polling Station in Sidanyi Parish, Petete Sub County, less than twenty (20) voters had come to cross-check their details on a register that has seven hundred (700) registered voters.  The trend was more or less the same in the other (8) polling stations visited,” the report states.
Some of the locals that CCEDU spoke to acknowledged reluctance in inspecting the register citing that they were on the register since they had voted during the 2011 general elections.  Others did not seem to be aware that the display of the voters register was underway in Butebo.
CCEDU also carried out a voter education campaign led by  CCEDU officials Yusuf Makweta, Gwada Ogot and Crispy Kaheru. They held a talk show on radio on Tuesday from 10.00-11.00pm detailing electoral values, the role and experiences of CCEDU in elections as well as citizens' duties and responsibilities in the electoral process.The talk show was conducted in Lugwere, Lumasaba, Luganda and English.
After official accreditation by the Electoral Commission, CCEDU will deploy 24 election Observers in Butebo to monitor electoral activities in the runner-up to the Butebo election. Voting day is June 6, 2013.
