Kenyan political aspirants can now monitor their votes thanks to this App

Political aspirants in Kenya can now monitor their vote tally online thanks to V-tally.

Election Day is nigh and every aspirant seeking a political seat is looking for ways to make monitor their votes whether at the constituent level or at the national level.

V-Tally, a new application accessible as a mobile app and from a web browser, could be the solution to all this as it seeks to allow users to view election results and also manage agents attached to an aspirant.

The application aims to help aspirants to view results posted by his/her agents and also add agents to the system.

And it’s simple to operate. The aspirant and his agents have to first download the application, where the aspirant will provide his or her details and select his or her candidature details as registered with the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).

The aspirant will receive an activation code via SMS or email to complete the registration then allows him to register the agents for the respective polling stations within the area he or she is vying.

Once the results from the polling station are ready, the agent is able to send results for the aspirant as well as his or her competitors. The results are relayed automatically and consolidated with results from other stations.

The developer Alex Mugo says that the purpose of this app is to enable an aspirant view events from the polling station and results from a single portal.

He notes that with V-Tally, an agent is able to report events happening at a polling station without having to make calls which can cause disruption in the polling station room.

As efficient as it may seem, Mugo is quick to add that that the results sent through this system only serves as provisional results as final results are only announced by appointed IEBC agents.
