ABSTRACT

Online voting refers to the option of using electronic means to vote in referendums and elections. E-Voting is an election system that allows a voter to record his or her secure and secret ballot electronically. The inefficiency of voting process in Nigeria has resulted in a lot of problems. These problems have continued to obstruct the peace of democracy in Nigeria because the choice of a capable candidate is not encouraged by the current system. The aim of the study is to examine the Design and Implementation of Electronic Voting System using Federal College of Education Technical Omoku as a case study. In achieving this aim, the following specific objectives were set out to design and develop a software platforms for voter registration, election voting, real-time election results collation and monitoring and mostly for voters remote access to elections, design and develop an electronic device that incorporates smart card reader and fingerprints technology for voters accreditation, authentication and verification, design and develop an administration dashboard for the election administrators, and execute simulations and compare the results of the designed e-voting system and other voting systems. The methodology adopted in this study is the object oriented analysis and design methodology (OOADM) which is a technical approach for analyzing and designing an application or system by applying object throughout the software development process. The programming language used is HTML, CSS, JAVASCRIPT, PHP, SQL and JQUERY. The reason why web programming languages was used is because, it is platform independent and it is a web based application. When this work is completed using all the information and data at hand, with the retrieved one in respect of this research, it is expected to give an account of the Design and Implementation of Electronic Voting System using Federal College of Education Technical Omoku as a case study.


Design and Implementation of an Online System of Electronic Voting

CHAPTER ONE


Introduction

1.1 Background of the Study

The federal republic of Nigeria comprises of 36 states, The federal capital territory (FCT), and 774 local government areas (LGAs). The country is located in west Africa and shares land borders with the republic of Benin in the west, Chad and Cameroon in the east and Niger in the north. The three largest ethnic groups in Nigeria are the Ibo, Hausa and Yoruba ethnic groups.

In Nigeria, General elections are conducted every four years, where a head of state the president and the national assembly representatives are elected. They are elected by the people. The national assembly has about 360 members representing various constituencies.

Most African electoral bodies with no exception to INEC, even with the advancements of technology, still use primitive paper based methods during voting; this system is characterized by manual form filling to chose leaders and transfer of information from manual data capture forms to computerized datasheets, this has led to a high number of mistakes making their way into the final votes count. The main advantage of the paper-based system is the ballot papers are easily humanly auditable. The disadvantages outweigh the advantages for instance printing of ballot papers is slow, expensive, inflexible, environmentally hostile and also literacy limitations and last-minute changes to the voter register are difficult to accommodate among others. Over the last few years some election observers have suggested the introduction of electronic voting at the state and federal levels. The online voting system mainly addresses the voting phase. Electronic voting process using the online voting system should be cheaper than the present paper-based system been used by the independent national electoral commission (INEC). Online voting is an electronic way of choosing leaders via a web-driven application. The advantage of online voting over the present manual system is that the voters have the choice of voting at their own free time and reduced congestion. It also minimizes on errors of vote counting. The individual votes are submitted in a database that can be queried to find out who the aspirants for a given post have the highest number of votes.

With the online voting system, a voter can use his/her voting right online without any difficulty. He/she has to register as a voter first before being authorized to vote. The registration should be done prior to the voting date to enable data updates on the database.


1.2 Statement of the Problem

The election process begins from voters registration. The method adopted during voters’ registration goes a long way to determine the freeness and fairness of the election. In Nigeria, the voting/registration process is very cumbersome. So many cases, missing data in the voter registration file have been reported. There
are also situations where unregistered voters flock to the polling station to participate in the voting process. Even after voting, malicious clerks and officers- in − charge of a polling station end up playing with the result figures.


1.3 Objectives of the Study

The aim of this project is to develop a database for voter’s registration which will, in turn, help the government to conduct a free and fair election using electronic machines. To replace the current inefficient manual system of voting in Nigeria. To ensure credibility in elections by preventing double voting, Help the government reduce the huge costs incurred in conducting elections.


1.4 Scope of the Study

The research work is designed to enable the National Electoral Commission to use an electronic devices to capture voter’s information. The design will cover some security issues like authenticating the nationality of the voters through integrating the national ID database to the voter’s registration process and also capturing the picture of the electorates for validation during the election.


1.5 Limitations

During the design of this project work, much finance was required and owing to the financial meltdown globally, the research was limited by finance and hence concentrated on the available materials within the locality.


1.6 Significance of the Study

In view of the rapid development of computer technology in virtually all fields of operation and its use in relation to information management, it has become important to look into the development of electronic voters registration system to enable the government to achieve the following:

  1. Conduct free and fair election
  2. Safeguard data and information in the system.
  3. The reduced workload in the process of conducting election
  4. Keep an accurate record of votes
  5. Reduce time wasted in announcing election result
  6. Eliminate disenfranchising electorates.
