Gains of Deploying eVoting Application during the 2019 AKSU Students’ Union Election

Share This


The 2019 Akwa Ibom State University (AKSU) Students' Union election took place on Friday, the 27th of September 2019. Technology was deployed by the management of the University using an eVoting application to aid the process of selecting the next crop of Students' leaders.

Some of the gains that have come as a result of the electronic process include:
- The process of ballot counting was faster and all voters were able to monitor the process individually in real-time.
- Time and cost was minimal as voters were able to vote independently from any location. This resulted in an overall increase of voter turnout.
- Incidences of Election Day touting, vote buying, and allied vices were eliminated.
- Overhead cost was reduced and efficiency was maximized.

- There was an increased level of voter participation.
- Voters felt a greater sense of security because they were able to vote from the comfort of their homes
- The voting platform was easily accessible online and it allowed all voters to participate on equal terms.
- Manual count and all the likely errors that come with it, was eliminated and this translated to an accurate and quick publication of results.
