INEC says in 2019 ‘There'll be no electronic voting' - ITREALMS Online

The chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, has declared they will be using no electronic voting system in 2019 general elections, reports ITRealms.

Addressing participants at the 67th World Congress of the International Press Institute (IPI) held in Abuja, weekend, Prof. Yakubu said although there will be no electronic voting, the process is already being engineered by technology.

"There is no electronic balloting in 2019. In other words, there will be no electronic voting in the next general election but technology is already being used in many aspects of the processes,” he declared, stressing that “Electronic voting should be the ultimate step in the chain involving five inter-related processes.”

He extended invitation to the international media that require longer time and logistics to prepare, saying that “you are welcome to cover our 2019 general elections.”

INEC, he said, believes the forthcoming elections will further underscore the maturity of our electoral democracy after the globally acknowledged success of the 2015 general elections.
