Voter Registration Exercise Set to Be Launched in All the Sub-Counties


PRO. Governor’s Office

Governor Eng. John Mruttu has said everything is set to launch the voter registration exercise in all the Sub Counties within Taita Taveta County. Eng. Mruttu says the exercise is meant to ensure that majority of the County residents are reached and urged to register as voters.

Our plans with other leaders to launch voter registration in all the three Sub Counties are complete. After we launched the voter registration exercise in Voi, we are now set to launch the exercise in Mwatate, Wundanyi and Taveta, said Eng. Mruttu.

Eng. Mruttu further urged the County residents to ensure they register within the next one month to ensure they register as the exercise is being done in all the wards.
This exercise has been taken to the Ward level, meaning that its closer to the wananchi compared to in the past where they had to travel to the district headquarters of the electoral body to register. This is an opportunity for them to register in large numbers, said Eng. Mruttu.

Eng. Mruttu added: ‘‘This exercise also offers a platform for all to change their voting centres and documents they will require to vote. However, we caution that no one should register twice as it will be criminal.’’
Governor Eng. Mruttu also urged the Independent Electoral Boundary Commission (IEBC) should fulfil it constitutional obligation of ensuring that it conducts sensitisation programmes in all counties that have less than of 35% of their population, to ensure the numbers improve.
‘‘It is the constitutional mandate of the IEBC to have affirmative action programmes to sensitise the public to register as voters, rather than leaving the responsibility to the political leaders,’’ said Eng. Mruttu.
The 2009 census statistics indicate that Taita Taveta County has a population of 284,657 people with 112, 219 people being registered as voters which represents 0.78% of voters nationally
