Over 3000 people have sought to transfer from regions they voted in previous years into Laikipia East.
A big queue has been witnessed at the Nanyuki IEBC office which is the constituency headquarters with most of those seeking to transfer being genuine cases.
IEBC Coordinator Peter Kuria said that 3300 people had filled the transfer forms by yesterday and most of the people are coming from other Counties since they are now working in the region and would not like to be locked out during the general elections.
Speaking in his office however Kuria warned aspirants of giving incentives to registered voters to transfer their voted so that they can vote them in. He said that such a scenario had been witnessed during the first week of registration where masses of people were seeking transfers to Laikipia North from neighbouring Meru and Samburu Counties but has since been countered.
The coordinator noted that such cases might lead to double registration which is a criminal offence and anyone who will be implicated might go jail. He said that so far the constituency has registered 8500 new voters with the targeted number being 35 thousand.
Kuria called on those yet to register to do so before to avoid last minutes rush adding that most people come out during the last week which might be inconveniencing to the clerks as the BVR machine can register a certain number of people per day.
James Mwangi who voted in Thika during the last elections urged Kenyans to be in the frontline to register to kick out politicians who have not performed.
