Election in Uganda today.

Today is the election in Uganda. I barely know or care about US Politics, much less be able to figure out what's going on in Uganda. I do know that these are the first multi-party elections in like 20-something years which I suppose is a good thing.

My main concern is that the country remains peaceful afterwards so that I can move there. For that reason I've been following the election closely through the two main newspapers. The govenment run paper is: New Vision while the independent paper is: The Monitor.

The monitor seems to have the most up to the minute election counts.

If no one gets more than 50% of the vote then there will be a runoff election.

current vote as of 3:00 california time:

Museveni (incumbant): 49.3%
Besigye (challenger): 47.4%

with 228,136 votes counted
