Raila said that they will employ the ‘adopt a polling station’ policy where voters will adopt a particular polling station in a bid to ensure that every single vote is accounted for. “You are soon going to get information on how to adopt a polling station,” he said .
The opposition chief further revealed that the agents will be in constant communication with their parallel tallying Centre to record each vote and later have the final figures.
