Brief 69: Electoral Administration in Kenya

The authors worked with Kenya’s Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to develop interventions that might increase voter registration, particularly in communities that are poor, sparsely populated, and far from election offices. The study was conducted in seven of Kenya's 47 counties. Of the 3,828 polling stations within these counties, 1,674 were selected for inclusion in the study using a sampling strategy that blocked on a polling station area's level of poverty, population density and distance from the election offices.
