JUBILEE SMARTCARD: KEY HIGHLIGHTS

  • The Jubilee Membership Smart Card is the first of its kind in Kenya’s electoral history.

  • The card has a unique bar code that is machine verifiable. It captures a member’s name, national identity card number and telephone number.

  • After the launch, the party will embark on countrywide mass recruitment of members.

  • The card will allow members to participate in forthcoming nominations.

  • The new technology will help in curbing chaotic and fraudulent nominations as we believe in free, fair and transparent elections.

  • It will be impossible for one to vote more than once as the Jubilee Party goes Smart.

  • After acquiring the card, a member will be required to activate his/her membership by sending the word ACCEPT as an SMS to 30553 and follow instructions by sending one’s name, ID Number, mobile and card number.

  • You may also be registered manually at our county branch offices

  • According to the electoral law, every registered political party is required to deposit its list of registered voters to the registrar of political parties.

  • All jubilee members who would wish to participate in the nomination exercise must therefore acquire the smartcard.
