How to check your voter registration details Online or Through USSD
You can verify your voter registration details through a text message or by logging into the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission portal.
IEBC chairperson Wafula Chebukati on has instructed voters to send an SMS with their ID/passport number to 70000 to confirm their voter registration details. Alternatively, voters can visit the iebc website portal by clicking here to verify their details ahead of the August polls.
The service, which commenced on May 4 will end after 30 days.
According to Chebukati, a person who duly applied to be registered and his/her name or the biometric data has not been captured correctly in the register of voters may make a claim to the Registration Officer within 30 days.
Those whose details are incorrectly captured are advised to visit the centre where they were registered.
The Commission had earlier announced that it had suspended the application for new registration.
According to Chebukati, the move was to give time for Kenyans to verify their biometric data and particulars of registered voters.
In the first phase of the voters’ registration exercise that commenced in October last year, the IEBC listed 1.51 million new voters, translating to about 25.3 per cent of its target of six million voters.
During the exercise, a total of 396,163 registered voters applied to transfer to registration centres of their choice, while 2,269 changed their particulars.
The commission also registered 2,959 new voters from Kenyans in diaspora, 2,964 requests for transfer, and 2,036 applications for change of particulars.
The commission had attributed low numbers to voter apathy and national ID-related issues.
