February 18: Ugandan presidential elections
Voter turnout in the African nation has been decreasing over the last elections. In 2001, when President Yoweri Museveni was still popular, turnout was 70.3 percent. By 2011, it had decreased to 59.3 percent, and analysts assume it'll be even lower this time around. Museveni is running for a fifth term that would extend his rule to 30 years, but the lives of Uganda's poor haven't improved much.
