The 2013 general elections were marred with extensively long queues that stretched long meters outside the polling stations.
IEBC has rolled out a few strategies to curb this queue menace for this year’s general elections.
The commission has increased the number of polling stations to 40,833. This means that each polling station will only have 700 voters therefore reducing the long queues.
The use of alphabetic queue system will also be used to curb the menace.Voters will be directed by the clerks to queue according to the first name as it appears on the ID or valid Kenyan passport.
The polling stations will also be subdivided into zones which will feed to the alphabetic queues.
There will be presence of signage and a clerk to guide the voters on the same.
