The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission IEBC on Thursday announced that the official voter register will be gazetted on or before June 9 2022. IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati told the press at the Bomas of Kenya on Thursday that there had been no breach in the registration data, and that voters would be able to review the publication once it was made public.
This is because the voter verification process, which allows eligible voters to confirm their information, is set to expire on June 2nd.
“I want to assure Kenyans that their data is safe, no data has been lost and will be lost, there has been no breach or any form of interference with the register which is under audit, then we shall have a final register on or before 9th,”Chebukati said.
“KPMG will be incorporated in the final register, the commission will certify it and gazette it by 9th then it will be broken down in form of counties and constituencies in readiness for elections,” he added.
A voter can also verify their information by sending an SMS to 70000 or visiting the Commission’s website portal.
