By yesterday afternoon when The New Times visited some stations, they were busy putting on the final touches.
At College APADE polling station in Kigarama Sector, Kicukiro District, all 14 polling booths had already been built inside classrooms.

Claudette Mukantwari, the electoral coordinator in the sector, said that all the five polling stations in the Sector were ready.

“Other activities concerning cleaning the polling sites and decorating them will be done on Saturday in a special community cleaning activity,” Mukantwari said, adding that currently, they are verifying the voters list.
