I thought this is going to be very important especially on Monday when results start trickling in at the national tallying centre.
KNOW WHO YOU ARE VOTING FOR, BEFORE YOU CAST YOUR VOTE!
Mars Group Kenya has officially opened public access to our Kenya Elections 2013 web portal. It is part of our Leadership, Governance & Accountability Portal and can be accessed via http://election2013.marsgroupkenya.org or directly from our home page www.marsgroupkenya.org
Search for information:
Do you know the candidates offering themselves at the ballot? What are my options? Who is running for MCA? Who is running for MP? Who is running for Women rep? Who is running for Governor? Who is running for Senator? Who is running for President? The web portal allows users to search by county, constituency and by ward for a list of all candidates nominated by the Independent Boundaries & Elections Commission (IEBC).
We offer it as a free resource as our contribution to free, fair and peaceful elections.
The portal contains the details of all candidates running for the positions of President, Governor, Senator, Member of Parliament, Women’s Representative and Member of the County Assembly.
