12 May 2015, 09:30 Nechesa Chemoi

Nairobi - The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission will hold the first ever annual voter education week from 18th to 22nd May, 2015.

The one week countywide event is part of the IEBC mandate of conducting continuous voter education as set out in Article 88(4)(g) of the Constitution.

“During this week, IEBC will seek to sensitize the public on the importance of participation in the electoral process as well boost the ongoing continuous voter registration process,” the commission said in a statement.

Other issues to be highlighted during the event include inclusion and mainstreaming, party lists, political tolerance, dispute resolution mechanisms, electoral technology among others.

“The voter education week will be implemented nationwide through outreach programmes to schools, electoral technology exhibition, media campaigns, onsite service delivery, open stakeholders’ forum and town hall meetings,” the statement added.

According to IEBC, the overall voter turnout in the 2013 General Elections was 85.99% and it intends to improve on this commendable turnout through educating the public on the need to exercise democratic and civic rights through voting.
