INEC to Replace Manual Voting with Electric Voting

The National INEC Chairman disclosed on Monday that the independent national electoral commission has started the process of switching to the electric system of voting.

He also disclosed that in preparation for the full migration to this electronic device, several manufacturers from all over the world have been invited to demonstrate how these machines operate.

I think that this is as huge step towards free and free election in Nigeria as this will reduce the rate of election malpractice.

The criminal activities and violence that has uncontrollably been paired with elections in Nigeria will also be curbed.

How else do you think that electric voting will improve the electoral process in Nigeria?
Are there downsides to this new method? if there are, what are they?
