Today the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) will open up a voter register to allows registered voters to verify their particulars before the most anticipated first general election under the new constitution.
Unlike in previous voter verification exercises, Kenyans have only 14 days to clear with IEBC. This took into effect when the parliament amended a law allowing IEBC to open the voter register for two weeks instead of a month as indicated by Elections Act.
The IEBC CEO James Oswago yesterday confirmed that his team had finished compiling and verifying the register which had 14 million registered voters enrolled by December 19.
