The final results of the IEBC’s mass voter registration exercise that ended on 15th march 2016 were finally released on 22 March 2016 with the total number of new voters registered being 1,428,056.
The one month exercise has resulted in CORD strongholds scooping a majority slots in the top 20 “best” performing counties in terms of the numbers of the newly registered voters.
Only five counties from Jubilee strongholds made it to the top 20. The famous Tharaka Nithi itself is not anywhere close to the top 20.
The leading county is Nairobi where 134,670 new voters were registered. In the neighbouring and densely populated county of Kiambu, 82,754 new voters were registered.
Nakuru takes the third position with 66,507 new voters while the fourth is Kisumu County with 59,611 new registered voters.
