Abstract

Electoral processes in Nigeria have, over the years been attended with numerous setbacks particularly in the conduct, coverage, computation and compilation of results as well as the considerable time-lag of results release which are altogether muffling the growth of our nascent democracy. This paper therefore proposed broadband deployment as a veritable tool to cater for easier collation of election results, fast transmission to designated and remote polling stations and quicker release of the final and acceptable results. It is believe that the application of broadband technology in Nigeria electoral system will strengthen our institutional capacity to conducting transparent elections in order to restore integrity to the process and to the country in the international arena.
