The following is the list of Forms 34 ranging from A to C:

The form includes the number of votes cast for each presidential candidate, the total number of registered voters from that station and the number of rejected or disputed votes.

In total there are 40,883 Form 34As submitted to the portal.

Form 34B

This form is used to group all results from the polling station under the constituency level. It contains the polling station code, station name, number of registered voters, votes for each presidential candidate and the number of votes cast.

A total of 290 Form 34Bs are submitted to the IEBC portal and also taken physically to the national tallying centre, Bomas of Kenya.

Form 34C
