Abstract

The 2015 election has been adjured to be the best in the history of electioneering process in Nigeria, thanks to deployment of Information Technology. But, in reality, the election was not, after all, flawless as many would want to believe. There were lots of problems associated with it particularly in the areas of verification and authentication of eligible voters by the fingerprint reader. This paper examines these problems and proposed a fuzzy based multi-modal architecture for future election in Nigeria. The architecture is based on the extraction of feature of fingerprint and iris of the prospective voters. Also examined were the features of fingerprints and iris as relating to authentication for electioneering purposes. Further discussed were the advantages of the proposed Architecture over the present Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) method of voter authentication.
