We Won’t Adopt E-Voting In 2015 – INEC

The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC says it will not adopt the electronic voting modern system in next year’s general elections.
This was disclosed by Mr. Kayode Idowu, the Special Adviser on Media to the Chairman of INEC Professor Attahiru Jega.
Giving reasons why INEC won’t adopt electronic voting for now despite its numerous advantages, Mr. Idowu said that the law barring the commission from introducing the system is yet to be amended.
He added that the time to prepare for its introduction in next year’s polls is too short even if the Electoral Act is amended.
Responding to recent allegations made by the Interim National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Chief Bisi Akande, Mr. Idowu expressed serious doubt about the possibility of voters’ names being repeated in the present electoral register.
He asked for evidence from the APC leader to buttress his allegation.
