Overseas Kenyans set to vote in 2017 elections

19 February 2015, 17:20 William Korir

Nairobi - Overseas Kenyans will be able to vote in the 2017 General Elections after the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commision IEBC started a process to register voters living outside the country.

The IEBC is targeting over three million Kenyans across the world, from which the electoral body expects to net over a million potential voters.

Launching the exercise Thursday, officials from the IEBC said that the mapping process would help them decide where and how to register potential voters in future.

Deputy Chairperson Lilian Mahiri-Zaja said all Kenyans over the age of 18 and duly registered are entitled to vote and that they would strive to ensure the process takes place and that it happens eventually.

" It will take some time and there will be challenges but we are determined to ensure it happens," she said in Nairobi.

Kenyans filling the form in the diaspora are required to give their name, gender, passport number, date of birth, passport expiry date, their country, city and state of residence.

The form is available online.

Just over 2,000 Kenyans in the east Africa region voted in the 2013 General Elections from outside the country's borders.
