A section of National Resistance Movement- NRM party village registrars in Oyam district have decried the poor turn up of voters for the primaries.

By 1:00 pm, several polling stations visited had less than 100 voters ready to vote in Iceme Sub County, Oyam North Constituency.

Michael Okech, the Village NRM Returning Officer of Awangi C in Orupo parish Iceme Sub County said voting was supposed to commence at 11:00 am but by midday, only 40 voters had turned up out of 282 people expected to cast their votes.  

Geoffrey Oweka, the Returning Officer of Akaidebe cell Eastern Ward Oyam Town Council says voting at his polling station started at noon. He, however, said out of 174 expected voters, only 32 turned up to vote.

Nancy Acola, Sandra Abonyo and Teddy Akullo who were supposed to vote at Akaidebe cell alleged that they were denied to cast their vote on the ground that they arrived late.
