Abstract

The trend in the technological development has made the use of computer and its supporting technologies mandatory in virtually all aspects of life.This is never an exception in the conventional voting process.Several issues have been revealed associated with the manual voting system which makes it inappropriate in the emerging technology-driven society. Several countries have successfully implemented an electronic voting technology. Considering Nigeria as a developing nation with quite a number of constraints regarding technological innovations, there is therefore the need to investigate the readiness on the part of the organization empowered to conduct elections in the country (INEC) so as to pave ways for its successful implementation.In this paper, the relationship among the variables of adoption evidenced from the previous literature was investigated using correlation coefficients and multiple linear regressions.As a pilot study, only 47 responses were captured from senior staffs of INEC. The results show that there is strong relationship between the variables examined.
