IEBC given options when to employ manual voter identification

NAIROBI, AUGUST 4TH-The Court of Appeal has directed the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission to use all means possible to electronically identify voters before resorting to the printed roll.

Delivering the judgement Friday afternoon, Court of Appeal Judge Roselyn Nambuye directed the agency to ensure compliance with its own procedural requirement that the ID cards of those whose biometrics can’t be read be scanned first with manual identification as the last resort.

The Appellate court has however declined to overturn the High Court order allowing for the use of a manual backup system in the identification and transmission of the election results.

NASA moved to court to challenge the use of a manual backup system in fear that it could open the door to dead voters.
