IEBC warns voters against sharing photos of marked ballot papers

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has warned voters against violating the secrecy of the ballot by sharing photos of marked ballot papers.

In a post on their social media pages, the Wafula Chebukati-led agency stated that the offence is punishable by law.

This was after some voters took a picture of marked papers and posted them on Twitter during the ongoing polls.

The Elections Offences Act requires every officer, candidate or agent in attendance at a polling station to maintain and aid in maintaining the secrecy of the ballot.
