Abstract

Nigeria’s experience with paper-based balloting has produced challenges to election such as the snatching of ballot boxes and alteration of election results. Full-flesh Technology-based election most especially the use of Electronic Voting Machines will go a long way to arrest some of these electoral crimes. Therefore, in this research work, we review the tedious electioneering processes, voting technologies, foot note and solution to the rising perspective as a result of low turnout of voters during elections in all the six geo-political zones with a proper documentation. Hence, a proposed web-enabled voting system which inculcates the features and characteristics of electronic voting machine (eVM), Internet Voting (i-voting) and mobile voting (m-Voting) is proposed for enhanced participatory democracy that has attributes of free, fair and credible election in Nigeria and Africa as a whole.
