IEBC urges youths to register as voters

18 May 2015, 07:55 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - Laikipia East sub-County Independent Electoral and Boundary Commission (IEBC) Co-coordinator, Karen Mwangi has urged youths to register as voters in large numbers.

While speaking to the media in Nanyuki town, Mwangi pointed out that it was through registering as voter that youths can exercise their democratic right of electing leaders when it comes to voting.

She further observed that her office is currently targeting youths who are obtaining identity cards after attaining the age of 18 years.

“We are working in collaboration with Chiefs and Department of Registration of Persons to facilitate dissemination of information on voter registration to the public and especially to the youths,” Mwangi noted.

However, she expressed concern that there is slow voter registration in the area and urged members of the public who have not registered to do so and not to wait for the last minute rush.

She noted the registration is ongoing and added that those who would like to transfer from one station to another can also do so.

The office is also removing names of those who are deceased from voters’ register.

Mwangi hopes more people will turn up for registration as the country approaches electioneering period.
