Kenya Election 2022: Polling Officially Closses

The voting process that started at 6am has come to an end in most polling stations in the country. According to Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), the voting process was gazetted to end at 5pm.

However, all voters who were still in the queues at that time will be allowed to cast their votes. The exercise is also expected to continue in areas where there were technical and logistical challenges.

What follows now will be the tallying process at all the polling centers.

Earlier in the day, all the four presidential candidates cast their votes with the Kenya Kwanza presidential candidate William Ruto voting at Sugoi, Uasin Gishu, while the Azimio la Umoja – One Kenya Coalition presidential candidate Raila Odinga voted at Old Kibra primary School, Roots Party presidential candidate Prof George Wajackoyah voted at Indangalasia Primary School after a long wait following a Kiems kit technical hitch.

According to the electoral commission, voter turnout was at 30 per cent by 12pm, which represents 6,567,869 million voters.

Kenyans have been urged to maintain peace even as the counting of votes begins.
