Abstract -
Nigeria obviously had been experiencing a high level of thuggery, insecurity and violence, less participation in its electoral processes. An alternative method to conduct its election was used during its 2015 general elections and a lot of hitches were observed. This research work presents a biometric online voting system that can enhance the electoral processes and thereby provide fast, accurate and secured election results. The result of this research work is a system that will serve as a centralized server to other nodes and will be deployed on the World Wide Web (WWW) to make the internet voting possible.
