The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) chairperson says that 14 million out of the 22 million registered voters cast their votes Tuesday.

This represents 64.6 per cent of the total registered voters.

However, Chebukati clarifies that the statistics do not include voters who were identified manually.

“So far there are 14 million votes cast yesterday, which is about 64. 6 percent. These numbers do not include voters who took part in the exercise manually after technological hitches developed in some parts of the country,” Chebukati said.

The IEBC chairman said one polling station and two constituencies had made errors when submitting Form 34A and Form 34B.

In Rukwaro polling centre in Rongo, Migori County, the presiding officer erroneously transmitted Form 34A.

To solve the error, Chebukati says electoral officials will wait for the original copy of Form 34A, to validate and replace it.

In Uasin Gishu County, Ainabkoi and Saboti constituencies uploaded incomplete Form 34 Bs. The uploaded Form 34Bs were missing crucial signatures of key players in the vote tallying process.

As a result, Chebukati says they asked the Returning officers to make sure everyone has signed the document before re-uploading.

As of the time he addressed Kenyans at Bomas of Kenya, Chebukati said that the commission had received 97.65 per cent of Form 34A from the polling station.
