KEY TAKEAWAYS


Under the Kenyan election laws, Form 34A is the first form used to tabulate the results of the presidential poll. The form is filled out by the Presiding Officer (PO) after the tallying of votes at the polling station level.


The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) on Tuesday, August 9 2022 released a new portal to help Kenyans check and verify presidential results online

IEBC opened a public portal for Kenyans across the country to monitor presidential results in real-time

The Commission granted access to the portal to tame misinformation and misrepresentation of facts and promote transparency in a cutthroat presidential contest. IEBC has allowed members of the public to access results declared across all the over 46,000 polling stations online in real-time.

Copies of the results in Form 34A from all polling stations in the country’s 47 counties can be accessed through https://forms.iebc.or.ke/.

Notably, the portal has the diaspora which is considered the 48th county, even though less than 5,000 Kenyans living abroad voted in the last election

Data shows that at least three million Kenyans live in different countries around the world. On the portal, the counties are arranged alphabetically with Baringo at the top while West Pokot comes last.

Those interested in following the results can also search a specific county or polling station within the portal. Under the county, IEBC further breaks down results from different constituencies to the wards

“Any complaints or discrepancies that may arise in the results Form 34A can only be resolved by the Supreme Court through a presidential election petition. Any complaints with respect to the results announced at the polling station must be resolved by the Presiding Officer,” Chebukati said last week while responding to Azimio-One Kenya and Kenya Kwanza formations’ concern about the results declaration form.

“There can be no discrepancy between the results recorded in Form 34A at the polling station and those transmitted electronically or even those received by the Returning Officer because it is essentially the same form captured by the Presiding Officer, witnessed by agents with a resultant five carbon copies,” he added.
