INEC moves to implement online voting


Nigeria’s electoral umpire – the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) – is already working on a project to allow the electorate to cast their votes online and decongest crowds at polling stations across the country.

Mr Festus Okoye, INEC National Commissioner and Chairman of Information and Voter Education Committee, disclosed this on Thursday.

He, however, did not give a specific timeframe as to when online voting would be implemented when he made the disclosure while speaking to Newsmen.
