  1. Lost Voter Identity Cards (ID): There were several new reported cases of lost voter ID Cards after the 2010 replacement of lost voter ID cards exercise. Efforts to resolve these problems delayed the processing of voters at the polling stations.
  2. Exclusion from the Transfer Voters List: Voters who had applied for permanent transfer of their voters during the 2008 General Elections but did not reapply for the said transfer in respect to the 2010 District Assembly and Unit Committee Elections did not find their names on the transfer list. The affected voters were very much disappointed.
  3. Electoral Areas/Unit Committees which did receive election materials before 28th December, 2010 complained about their inability to vote on the said date. They were unhappy about the inability of the Commission to specifically state the new date to conduct the elections in the respective electoral areas.
  4. The voters and candidates complained about the inconvenience of having to postpone other private assignments to enable them vote on the election day only for the date to be changed.
  5. The candidates complained about the cost of transporting their agents to their assigned polling stations on voting day only to be informed of the postponement.

It is important to note that in spite of all the enumerated challenges all materials with the exception of the ballots, reached the districts before 28th December, 2010. This means that but for the inability of the printers to deliver, the elections could have been held without the hitches associated with its conduct.
