IEBC Concerned With Low Voter Registration Turnout

Low turnout continues to be witnessed in the ongoing Enhanced Continuous Voter Registration (ECVR) across the country even as the exercise enters the homestretch.

In the latest update issued by the Commission Chairman Wafula Chebukati, IEBC managed to register a total of 800,462 new voters as of 5pm Monday out of the projected week three target of 4.5 million.

Nairobi County is leading with a total of 71,557 new registered voters while Isiolo county has the least number of new voters with only 3,087 new voters.

The Exercise is on its fourth and final week and is set to close on November 2nd.

The Commission has urged unregistered persons who are eligible to vote to turn out and take advantage of the exercise during this final week.
