Voter Registration for the 2013 General Elections in Kenya

On March 4, 2013, Kenya held a landmark general election.

This election was also the first to be administered by the newly created Independent Elections and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), a body which enjoyed over 90 per cent public confidence in the lead-up to the national polls.1
