The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has today Monday, 4th October launched the Enhanced Continuous Voter Registration (ECVR) drive in Nakuru County.
The exercise will run for 30 days until 2nd November 2021 in all the 1,450 County Assembly Wards across the Country.
It will be also conducted in the 27,241 gazetted registration centers countrywide that include the 52 Huduma Kenya centers.
The exercise targets to enroll six million new voters, who have attained 18 years of age and have acquired a national identification card, have valid passports or citizens who were not registered in the previous registration drives.
Voter registration drive is a key step in the roadmap to the 2022 General Election. It will be followed by cleaning of the register before IEBC competitively procures an independent firm to audit the register, verify and certified it for use in the coming election.
Kenyans who registered as voters between 2012 and now should NOT register afresh, but wait for the register inspection window to verify their details, which will be announced at a later date.
The Commission said that it will soon communicate details on how to verify voters’ registration status through SMS and web portal platforms.
