The Electoral Commission has over the past few weeks been carrying out sensitization of voters about the Biometric voter verification machine which it says will help stop multiple voting in the same election.

EC also says the machines will stop voting in someone else’s name and guides a voter to their polling stations.

EC also debunked myths that have been circulating indicating that the machine will store someone’s voter record. On the contrary the electoral body says the system does not store someone’s choice but only verifies the presence or not of someone on the register.

EC has been telling people to carry their National ID or Voter Location Slip on polling day. However, they will still be allowed to vote.

You must be on the voters Register to vote. SMS your National ID Number (NIN) to 8228 to confirm your polling station or visit http://ec.or.ug/register
