NEC please update the WEB

I was browsing the net and go to National Election Commission hoping to find latest information on the 2010 General Election, but to my disappointment it seems the last update was 2nd July.
The countdown timer shows, as of today that we have 62days to the general election which is October 31, the site also have some printing errors on some of its postings,
I believe at this time around NEC website is supposed to be one of the most updated sites given the fact of seriousness of its core function to the 2010 General Election and the importance of delivering right information at the right time to the right audience.
