Electronic voting (also known as e-voting) encompasses both electronic means of casting votes and counting of votes. It can include punched cards, optical scan voting systems and specialized voting kiosk, transmission of ballots via telephones, private computer networks or the internet. A pilot program for Kenya’s 2013 General Election, IEBC successfully registered 1.5 million Kenyans in 1600 registration sites in 18 of Kenya’s 210 voting constituencies. Kenya chose fingerprint and facial biometrics for voter identification, and to ensure a clean voter list also elected to do multi-biometric matching. Failure of the Electronic Voter identification devices (EVID) and the Results Transmission Systems (RTS) acquired through second tender arose from the misunderstandings and squabbles within IEBC during the procurement stage. This study  adopted a descriptive survey design. The study was conducted at the IEBC head office and included the general public. The population comprised of 450 employees of IEBC. Stratified proportionate random sampling technique was used to select the sample. The study grouped the population into the various employment levels that is top, middle and low level management. From each stratum the study used a proportion of 15% from each stratum to select 68 respondents. Primary as well as secondary data were collected. Primary data was collected using questionnaires. Secondary data was obtained from relevant literature review from studies, journals, magazines and the internet. Secondary information was collected from reports, business magazines and other relevant materials. The completed questionnaires were tabulated, coded and processed by use of a computer Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) version 20 to analyze the data. Descriptive statistics such as mean and standard deviation were used. Tables, pie charts, and graphs were used to present responses and facilitate comparison.
