There have been a number of images shared on the internet, claiming to show voters in different polling stations. Two of these were shared on Twitter. One claims to show voters queuing in Gatundu, Kiambu county and another, Nyeri.
In this year’s general elections, the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) registered 22.1 million voters, the highest so far. 49.12% of these are women, while men at 50.88% of the total voters.
While these elections accounted for the largest number of registered voters, there was a low voter turnout. About 65% of the 22.1 million registered voters cast their votes, the lowest since the most recent two elections in 2017 and 2007.
