Elections to the Legislative Council were held in Kenya Colony in 1931. Five of the eleven White seats were uncontested, with Lord Delamere amongst those returned unopposed.[1] Unlike previous elections, which were boyotted by the Indian population, this time the community participated. Fourteen candidates including two independents contested the five Indian seats. However, seven of them declared that they would not take their seats on the Council if elected until the separate voter rolls for Whites and Indians were scrapped.[1]
