ABSTRACT
Voting is a very important process in the Nigerian political system.  It is one of the means and most effective method of ensuring a legitimate government through popular participation.  To enthrone sound democracy and stability in the political system in Nigeria, a system of rig-free voting has to be put in place. Online voter registration systems supplement the traditional paper-based process, by which new voters fill out a paper form that is submitted to election officials, who confirm the registration is valid, and enter the information from the paper application into the registration system. The system would among others discourage double voting, forgery or hoarding of electoral materials massive transfer of ballot papers destruction of ballot boxes, inflation of electron figures and unnecessary delay in pronouncement of election result.  This could be achieved by an on-line voting system incorporating finger vein sensing to remove the difficult administrative tasks of the electoral body which regulated the conduct of election in Nigeria.  This basically forms the goal set to achieve in this study. Therefore this project aims at alleviating the incidence of rigging and introduction of an organized procedure of voting which is the bana of socio-economic and political progress in Nigeria. The software is equipped with much security that will allow voters to vote only with a valid voting pin number, which is generated by the computer upon registration.  The system uses these numbers to prevent users from performing double vote or registration.  It is also anticipated that the thumb vein print will be used as pass codes which is connected to the voter’s account on the system, it will improve on the security.  During registration, the system checks the voter’s age to prevent under aged voters from registering.
