The History of elections can be traced from old and ancient Greek and Roman States. Elections were also used in ancient Athens, in Rome and in selection of Popes and Holy Roman emperors as the same went with the selection or election of Caliphate in the ancient Islamic history after the death of the prophet of Islam Muhammad.' By 1965 for example in the USA following the passage of the Voting Right Act which focused large! y on seeking to redress the historical impact on racial discrimination within the electoral process, elections were seen as the best way through which people could govern the affairs of their states. 2 An election is a decision making process by which a population chooses an individual to hold a formal office on their behalf. An election is a contrivance through which a modem state creates amongst its citizens a sense of involvement and participation in public affairs. It is through popular elections that the authority to new leaders is ensured. The right to choose leaders by the people is guaranteed in the Constitution of Uganda; however this guarantee is not effectively exercised by the people as provided in this research.
