Kenyans will go to the polls on Tuesday, August 9, to vote for their new leaders.

This is a step-by-step guide on how cast your vote as explained by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC):

  1. Carry your original National ID card or Passport to your polling station.
  2. At the polling station, IEBC officials will identify you using your biometrics in the Kenya Integrated Election Management System (KIEMS) kit.
  3. After successful identification, you will be issued with six ballot papers. The White ballot paper is for presidential, green for Member of National Assembly (MP), beige for member of county assembly (MCA), yellow for senator, purple for county woman member of national assembly (Woman Rep.) and blue for governor. All these ballot papers must be stamped at the back to avoid ballot stuffing.
  4. Mark your preferred candidate on the respective ballot paper using either a Tick (√) or cross (x). The mark should be within the box; there should be only one mark on each ballot paper.
  5. After marking your ballot papers, fold them and cast your votes into the right ballot box for each elective seat.
  6. An IEBC officer will then mark your small finger with indelible ink to show that you have already voted. This is to avoid voters from voting more than once.
  7. Leave the polling centre to give room for other voters to exercise their democratic right.
