IEBC Releases Final Voter Registration Tally

The Indeppendent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has released a report of the Kenyans who registered as voters during the registration period that ended on Tuesday, December 18th. The report indicates that a total of 14,337,399 Kenyans registered as voters for the 2013 general elections, representing 79.7% of the 18 million Kenyans IEBC had targeted to register.

The top five counties in turnout were: Nairobi (121.6%), Kiambu (113.7%), Nyeri (110.4%), Lamu (109.5%), and Kirinyaga (106.7%).

The bottom five counties in turnout were: West Pokot (45.1%), Garissa (40%), Wajir (35.7%), Turkana (30.2%), and Mandera (25.3%).

In terms of actual numbers of registered voters, Nairobi County led with a total of 1,778,903 registered voters.

Credibility is key for Kenyans to have faith in IEBC. So far so good. Going by the numbers that turned out to register, citizens have embraced and appreciate that only by registration and through ballot do they have control over the country's destiny. I thus request the electoral body to oversee the voting process freely n fairy.

Meanwhile, it is heart breaking to note that two weeks after conclusion of the exercise, the BVR officials haven't been paid. This may have a negative impact on the exercise when dissatisfaction comments hit the media houses. In light of this, what is the official position on this?

IEBC should pay the people who helped them register these people. It is unfortunate that no one cares to talk about this issue.

IEBC is still dumb on the payment issue. This is criminal and against the constitution. Payment should have been done by now and it is so disheartening not to pay promptly. Remember that those who engaged had to work from 7am-7pm without a break. Thus, within the contract period, they couldn't engage in any other economic activities other than registration. Without any down payment and given the festive season, majority are in debts. It is time IEBC released their payment otherwise, we shall witness another mass action n sabotage as the officials take to the streets.

Its a big shame that iebc can not deliver payments for us who helped then in the voter registration in diffrent forms. this is worrying since i do not trust them any more in delivering the results in a day if the can not deliver payments in two weeks.

Work done by IEBC so far is good, only that there should be improvement here n there; ie, payment of staff n supliers in time and adhearance of calender & schedules, avoiding of last minute changes and alteration of programs.

I am completely unhappy to learn that my name is not in the register after straggling to travel 300 kms to do registration- I was given an acknowledgement slip no.0003901630 which i am still asking what it was for. Do i have to go back( pay 2500 fare) and do a second registration, how can i trust IEBC when even without getting registered, i can find my name under aparty i have never been a member of. Come on lets be serious

When is civic education starting?

Peter's picture

heko so far for a job well done. what i would not like to believe is the conclusion of voting in a day. taking the worst scenario of a slow illiterate voter, the number of computers per polling station, the number of voters, the time to think, decide, seek assistance,fill the ballot and cast, tells me that it will not be less than ten minutes.

Keep us in a good footing and tell us that in some or most stations it will take 2 to 3 days, before tangible results are availed.

This will make voters avoid speculations if it ever happens for heavens sake.
