ABSTRACT

Online voting system for INEC is a software simulation that enables INEC to conduct electoral processes electronically, with the aim of reducing cost, time, energy, electoral fraud and other irregularities. The software simulation will enable users to register for elections online without having to move to any polling boot. The software is equipped with much security that will allow voter vote only with a valid voting pin number, which is generated by the computer upon registration. The system uses these numbers to prevent users from performing double registration. The system would among others discourage double voting, forgery of electoral materials, massive transfer of ballot papers, destruction of ballot boxes, inflation of election figures and unnecessary delay in the pronouncement of election result.

                                                                                                                        1.0 Background of study

The advancement made in technology over the past years are astonishing. The computer alone has progressed at a remarkable pace and updates are continually occurring. Along with the progress of the computer, comes the transformation of the virtual world. The internet is a fairly recent concept that has profoundly affected our daily lives. As with anything new, the internet posses various mysteries. Research is being conducted to determine the possibilities of an online voting. Internet voting opens the door to all sorts of possibilities for our state voting future.
 Therefore, voting is a means of selecting or choosing leaders. It does not apply to only local, state and federal government of Nigeria but, also in different institutions and social organizations. The conduct of elections in a democratic society is very important not only because through it, a change of government is effected but, also because voting is the main form of political participation for most people. Democracy should be anchored on election free from fraud, for it to be sound.
