Samburu County ranks first, with 2128 persons registered and an 8% participation rate, followed by Elgeyo Marakwet, Wajir, West Pokot, Mandera, Nandi, Baringo, Narok, Turkana, and Tana River counties.

The top ten counties are however, Dr William Ruto's bedroom. This is a huge boost to him against opponents like the former prime minister Hon Raila Odinga who is yet to declare his presidential bid.
