Framework for an E-Voting System Applicable in Developing Economies

By Lauretta O. Osho Muhammad Bashir Abdullahi Oluwafemi Osho

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Nov. 2016

Information technology has pervaded virtually every facet of human life. Even in the delivery of governance, information technology has gradually found a place. One of its applications is the use of electronic voting, also known as e-voting, as opposed to the traditional manual method of voting. This form of voting, however, is not immune to challenges generally associated with voting. Two of these include guaranteeing voting access to all eligible voters, and providing necessary voting security. The challenge of accessibility is especially peculiar to developing countries where IT adoption is still relatively low. This paper proposes a framework for an e-voting system that would most benefit developing economies. It ensures availability of the system to only eligible voters and integrity of the voting process through its capacity to identify and prevent ineligible voters and multiple voting. To guarantee accessibility to all eligible voters, it supports both online and offline voting capabilities. Adopting electronic form of voting would provide a more robust, easier to use, and reliable system of voting, which, consequently, would contribute towards enhancing the delivery of democratic dividends.

Effective Networking Model for Efficient Implementation of E-Governance: A Case Study of Nigeria

By Lauretta O. Osho Muhammad Bashir Abdullahi Oluwafemi Osho John K. Alhassan

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Jan. 2015

Nigeria is a nation full of potentials ranging from its human resources advantage to its mineral resources – the list is endless. Ambitious too, it has come to terms with the fact that ICT must be utilized even for the delivery of democracy dividends to actualize its vision of being among the top 20 economies by year 2020. In this paper, we explore the nation’s drive towards adopting e-governance by generally itemizing the requirements for e-governance, appraising how far Nigeria has gone in implementing it and then proposing a workable way to achieve it. Our study reveals that while the visions for e-government implementation are well articulated in terms of required components and intended deliverables, there are no clear statements on the processes of implementation. To this end, we propose some networking models adoptable towards realizing the different dimensions of e-government.
