Please note, it is important to inform all your polling unit agents that the card reader can be manipulated, and the following measures should be taken to prevent such.
1. Upon arrival at the polling unit, agent must inspect the card reader at the unit by requesting the Polling Officer PO to present the card reader for inspection.
2. Request the PO to click on query icon on the smart card reader, if it shows zero it is okay, but if it shows any figure before comencement of accreditation, it has been pre programmed.
3. The agent should raise alarm and inform agents of other parties and no accreditation should take place until the card reader is cleared.
Please this is important as failure in any election starts from the polling unit.
