Amani National Congress party leader Musalia Mudavadi cast his vote at Mululu primary school polling station in Sabatia Constituency.
Musalia, who is the Kenya Kwanza coalition co-principal, lauded the Kenya Integrated Election Management System (KIEMS) kits for enabling fast identification of voters and hence reducing the time taken to vote.
He appealed to the residents to turn out in large numbers to vote for leaders of their choice but expressed confidence that his coalition would carry the day.
The area woman member of national assembly Beatrice Adagala called on the youth to avoid indulging in drug and alcohol abuse so that they participate in the voting exercise.
Adagala, who is defending her seat on the ANC party ticket, asked the people to empathise with the elderly and the disabled by allowing them to vote as soon as they arrive at the station.
The county has 272, 409 registered voters with 548 polling stations spread across five constituencies.
