Elections in changamwe constituency are being conducted using a manual system. Voters are registered manually in a file system causing long queues during election period. There were also cases of double registration of voters, missing name of voters and incorrect names entered caused by traditional file systems that are slow and tedious. The old systems also faces delays in vote counting caused by manual counting of votes, and as a result of that the turnout is low. Since most population is scattered in different parts of changamwe, it becomes so hard for them to leave there work and go to polling station. They were also cases of rigging and corruption which arise during the election process, since there were some candidates or officials who manipulate and influence the outcome and finally results are announced that are erroneous and contradictory.
