Angry voters in Soroti have called on the NRM secretariat to clean up the party's voter registers before the primary elections can begin.
The call comes amid growing complaints about the missing names and inflated voter registers.
William Ekallo, who is contesting against the former junior minister for health Capt Mike Mukula for Soroti municipality seat, said that the elections today must be called off to pave way for the clean up of the voter registers.
Ekallo claims that most of his supporter's names are missing from the register and alleged that most of the people wit voter's cards are Mukula's supporters.
But Mukula instead blamed the NRM electoral commission for the missing names.
Voting at most polling stations in Soroti Municipality had not kicked off by midday today. Voters' names were either missing on the registers or ballot papers for some contestants was nowhere to be seen.
All the seven polling stations in Soroti's independent square lacked ballot papers for both mayoral and council aspirants.
Some areas reported a mix up in the polling materials. In Moroto, the returning officers reported that voting material destined for Moroto was instead found in Soroti, while Soroti also received voting materials intended for Moroto.
With such a mess, the voters threatened to demonstrate, while many others warned that they would boycott the election.
Voters whose names were missing from the registers said that they had been denied an opportunity to participate in a crucial election.
