Abstract

Voting is an act of democracy. Citizens are given the opportunity to voice their opinions by voting. Involving technology will enhance the process by ensuring that every citizen irrespective of his/her abilities or disabilities can exercise such rights. This research work seeks to bring to fore the full benefits of implementing complete e-Election in Nigeria and also using an M/G/S based simulation software predicted the bandwidth as well as resource allocation for an effective conduct of e-voting, which has become more and more glaring with the failure of over 78 years old practice of paper balloting. The study proposed a Public Network Direct Recording Electronic (PNDRE) Voting System which stands out as the ideal option for Nigeria.
