For the first time in its history, prisoners in Kenya are being allowed to vote.
No less than 145 inmates have cast their votes at the Kisumu Maximum prison, while about 4,000 prisoners across the country had been registered to vote, reports say.
However, while the prisoners are only allowed to vote in the presidential election, other Kenyans are taking part in six elections, from president down to local representatives.
There are six separate ballot papers for president, national assembly, female representatives, governors, senate and county assemblies; while 47 parliamentary seats and 16 senate seats have been reserved for women.
Eight presidential candidates comprising incumbent President Uhuru Kenyatta and opposition leader Raila Odinga are favourites.
It may be recalled that Kenyatta beat Odinga in the 2013 elections. Their respective fathers were also political rivals in the 1960s, analysts say.
