Presidential ballot papers to arrive Monday in two planes

Two planes carrying the presidential ballot papers to be used in the August 8 General Election will land at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport on Monday, July 31 after binding and packaging is concluded.

Al Ghurair Printing and Publishing Company General Manager, Lakshmanan Ganapathy, confirmed this saying printing of presidential ballot papers in Dubai will be completed tonight (July 27) ahead of the delivery.

IEBC commissioner, Roselyn Akombe, said the ballot papers will be airlifted to places where there are security concerns like Lamu, Garissa, Mandera, Lamu, Tana River and Wajir Counties.

“The commission is taking drastic measures to reduce errors and time wastage among unique features include results management forms being pre-printed with candidates’ details,” Akombe said.

IEBC commissioner, Ambassador Paul Kurgat, also says the commission strongly advises all eligible voters to pick all six ballot papers on election day to avoid higher turnout for some elective positions than others.
