Results from the repeat presidential election will be transmitted electronically, IEBC chair Wafula Chebukati has gazetted.
The gazette notice goes on to state that there will be a complimentary mechanism to transmit results from the October 26 poll.
"The chairperson verifies electronically collated results in form 34B against each electronic polling station results forms 34A. Verifies electronically transmitted forms 34A against the physically delivered forms 34A," Chebukati says in the notice on Thursday.
"The chairperson of the commission announces the results from each county, declares presidential election results to the Chief Justice and to the incumbent president," he adds.
Chebukati says in the event results transmission fails at the polling station, the presiding officer will be required to move to the nearest point with good network.
"The commission shall publicise, through electronic or print media of national circulation ... to the public of the failure of transmission from that polling station," the chair says.
Parliament and the Senate have passed an Election Bill that gives manual results more prominence than electronic results.
It also gives powers to the commission vice-chair in the event the chair is unable to perform their duties.
The Bill is expected to be signed by President Uhuru Kenyatta at the weekend.
IEBC has also gazetted the names of returning officers in all 290 constituencies and 47 counties.
