The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has launched the process that offers the public an opportunity to inspect and verify whether or not their personal details are captured correctly in the register.
The electoral commission yesterday assured of the legitimacy ahead of the August 9 general election, and voters will have the option to check their registration details during the next 30 days.
If there are any inaccuracies, voters will have the option to update their information.
Those who applied to transfer their voting centres will be able to check whether the process was completed, if their new polling stations were completed, and if their polling stations were the ones they wished to change to.
Those who have problems with their information as it appears in the register can file a claim with the registration officer at any of the commission’s locations across the country.
Marjan Hussein Marjan, the IEBC’s chief executive, asked the public to take advantage of the opportunity to visit their registration centres and double-check their information.
If you wish to double-check your information, you’ll need your original ID or a valid passport that you used to register.
The exercise comes after the commission awarded KMPG the contract to audit the registry as required by law last month.
The Elections Act requires the commission to hire a professional business to undertake an audit with the goal of verifying the register’s accuracy, updating it, and, if required, recommending ways to improve its accuracy.
The commission has 30 days to implement the audit report recommendations once KMPG submits its report 30 days after the contract is awarded.
