The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) election coordinator for Nandi Mrs. Catherine Bulinda has asked Nandi residents to consider registering as voters so as to be able to exercise their voting democratic rights in the coming general elections.
Bulinda cited that majority of the public have failed to elect their leaders because they haven’t registered as voters locking them out of voting process therefore reminded those who have not registered as voters to come out and register.
Bulinda was speaking during the official launch of the annual voter registration exercise which is slated to be conducted across the county for the period of one week as she urged Nandi residents to turn up in large numbers and register as voters in readiness of the forth coming general elections.
She confirmed that the voter registration education exercise will be conducted in all the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission offices across Nandi urging locals to visit the offices to be guided on what to do.
“Our offices across Nandi will be conducting the exercise as we have a team of competent clerks that will sensitize the public concerning the entire process of voter registration,” stated Bulinda
The coordinator called upon residents who do not have identity cards especially those who have attained the age of eighteen and above to swiftly apply for the Kenyan IDs to enable them register as voters.
“Voters should exercise their democratic right by electing their preferred leaders and this is only achieved when people get registered as voters,” she affirmed.
The political leadership of Nandi led by Aldai and Mosop Members of Parliament who attended the annual voter registration education week launch, appealed to locals to turn up in large numbers and get registered.
On the other hand, Bishop for the Anglican Church of Kenya Kapsabet Diocese Dr. Paul Korir urged residents to uphold peace all the times as the country prepares for the next year’s general elections.
