On 9th September, 2021; students from Mekaela Ratinga Primary School had their turn to use the Electronic Voting and Tallying system to elect their student leaders.
Unlike many other schools, that either conduct manual elections i.e. paper based; we at Mekaela are leading the pack in pioneering this electronic system that guarantees learners their Democratic right to vote using the 'secret-ballot' method, integrity of the ballots cast, and real-time tallying and result analysis.
The process also enhances their Digital Competencies especially given the fact that we're in the 21st Century, and with the CBC curriculum encompassing the digital co-competencies that the learners are supposed to attain.
We also know that this system and election process, will shape the children into great Kenyan and Global Citizens.
