Voter Registration

Now that voter registration is underway in Kenya, I found myself wondering where I should actually do my registration. I scoured the inter webs and found that the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has a file that contains a listing of all polling stations in the country(dated 2013). Quite a nice find but pretty tedious to look through. So I decided to parse it, make it searchable and thus easier for one to find the polling station they need based on county, constituency and ward.

It needs a lot more work, i think. Perhaps a mapping of polling stations, registration officers assigned to specific centers and their contact information, etc

  1. The massive investments in electronic and biometric kits have taken the registration and voting process backwards, and don’t curb the fraud they were intended to.
