The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Monday commenced experimentation of electronic voting and the e-collation of election results in Nigeria. The INEC National Chairman, Prof. Yakubu Mahmood, supervised the experimentation of e-voting at the commission’s headquarters in Abuja.

Prof.  Mahmood had indicated that the Monday experimentation marks the first step in the series of processes towards the introduction of e-voting in Nigeria. Mahmoud disclosed that INEC invited manufacturers of electronic voting machines around the world to practically demonstrate how the machines work, preparatory to full migration from manual to electronic voting in Nigeria.

The INEC chairman further disclosed that over 40 electronic voting machine vendors have expressed interest in providing the technology required for e-Voting in Nigeria.

Many stakeholders in the country have for long been advocating for adoption of e-voting to curb the rigging of elections in Nigeria.
