Elections should be a peace building mechanism because they are a means to determine that will of the people.
Outside the polling station, you queue and await your turn.
When it is your turn to vote
- Your fingers are examined to ensure you have not voted before
- Your name is checked on the voters roll
- You are then given a ballot paper
- Your left hand little finger is dipped inside the indelible ink container
- You go into the ballot booth (compartment) in secret. You mark X next to the name and symbol of the person of your choice. Write nothing else on the ballot paper. Then you fold your ballot paper.
- You go and deposit your ballot paper in the ballot box
- You then leave the polling station
- After the polling station has closed, the presiding officer, in the presence of candidates, election agents and observers, accounts for all ballot papers used and seals (closes) the ballot boxes.
