The recently Enhanced Continuous Voter Registration exercised launched on 4th October 2021was a relief for Kenyans who were yet to have a voters card which is essential in the exercise of their democratic rights.
The exercise will enable Kenyans to participate in the upcoming general elections scheduled to take place on August 2022. The registered voters will also have a chance to transfer their registration status to electoral areas of their choice and correct erroneous registration particulars .
Those who want to transfer voters the commission has reminded them to do the application for transfers at the 290 constituencies.
The commission has deployed the Biometric Voter Registration (BVR) System with a total of 4350 within the county assembly wards . 1 BVR kit has been deployed to 290 constituencies to register University and College students to Centres of their choices countrywide
The BVR kits deployed to wards will ensure accesssibility of registration centres by new voters who would otherwise be discouraged by long distances to registration centres. The ones in constituency will reach young eligible voters in universities and various institutions of higher learning to register in electoral areas of their choices in any part of the country. The ones in the Huduma Centres have been opened up to allow registration in any centre of choice in the country.
The commission is therefore encouraging all who have obtained ID cards to turn up and register as voters in order to exercise their democratic rights come 2022.
