How To Do Your Voting Today And What You Need To Carry

Almost 22 million voters are expected to cast their vote today to elect their leaders of choice. The voters will be choosing leaders across six elective seats which includes; the presidential seat, governor, senator, Member of the National Assembly (MP), county woman representative and Member of County Assembly (MCA).

As you go to vote, there is a procedure that will be strictly followed. What you need to carry is the national identity card or the passport only. What you will carry is what you registered your vote with. On what to do during the voting day, ensure you are given all the six ballot papers even if you went to vote for one candidate. The six are presidential, MP, MCA, Governor, Senatorial and Women Representative.

Once you arrive at the polling station, ensure you make a good queue like the rest and keep moving forward as the line progress. Once you get into the polling centre, the first clerk you will meet has the kiems kit. He/she will check your biometric fingerprint to check if you are registered. Therefore, ensure your hands are clean.

If you pass the biometric verification, you will then go to clerk two, three, four and five who will issue you with ballot papers. You will then vote and go home to wait for the final results.

Avoid forging, defacing or destroying a ballot paper. Also, avoid drama in the polling station. Also, don't try to hide a ballot paper with an intention to go home with it. These are punishable offences. The most important thing is maintaining peace. Therefore going home after voting is the best option. Ensure you vote for all six posts. Don't leave papers unmarked.
