The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) opened a public portal for Kenyans across the country to monitor presidential results in real-time.
The Commission granted access to the portal to tame misinformation and misrepresentation of facts and promote transparency in a cutthroat presidential contest.
The portal was opened shortly after the Wafula Chebukati-led commission closed voting in all polling centres at 5 pm following a 12-hour exercise, with a few exceptions where delays were witnessed during the day.
How To Check;
The portal has all the 48 counties where anyone can check per county how the four presidential candidates are performing.
You can access the results through this link – https://forms.iebc.or.ke/#/
Notably, the portal has the diaspora which is considered the 48th county, even though less than 5,000 Kenyans living abroad voted in the last election.
Data shows that at least three million Kenyans live in different countries around the world.
On the portal, the counties are arranged alphabetically with Baringo at the top while West Pokot comes last.
It also shows the number of votes counted per county against the registered voters and the Reported forms 34A.
Those interested in following the results can also search a specific county or polling station within the portal.
Under the county, IEBC further breaks down results from different constituencies to the wards.
This year’s General Election attracted a low voter turnout with only 12,065,803 registered voters, out of 22,120,458 having cast their votes by 4 pm, Tuesday, August 9, according to IEBC.
