Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review

Abstract

The literature reviewed confirm challenges in the electoral process in developing countries like Ghana. These challenges are mainly Institutional and Technical Challenges. The Institutional challenges come from the electoral commission, security agencies such as the Police, and civil society groups that are not well equipped to lend their full support to the electoral process, and also electoral challenges can be identified in three stages, pre-election, during an election, and after the election. And it is assumed that e-voting system when adopted will resolve this electoral challenges, but the system design should be approached from the Socio-technical perspective so that the system will not fail after implementation.
