ONGOING IEBC VOTER REGISTRATION
The voter registration process is on and there is a call for every Kenyan citizen who is not registered to show up and register to shape our future. The process is going to run from 4th october-2nd November 2021.
Kenya is signatory and State Party to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD); which in Article 29 on ‘Participation in political and public life’ obligates State Parties to facilitate participation of Persons with Disabilities in political and public life.
Do you think that IEBC has done enough to ensure full participation of persons with disabilities in this voter registration process? some of the issues you may want to know as we prepare for 2022 General Elections are if IEBC has made the electoral process accessible to persons with disabilities especially in regards to:
1: Physical access to polling stations and polling booths
2: Balloting materials
3: Access to civic and voter education
4: Use of Assisted Voting for persons with visual impairments and intellectually impaired.
