Students invent voting device at Yola American varsity
From DAVID MOLOMO, Yola
Sunday, May 09, 2010

Two second year students of American University of Nigeria, Yola, Adamawa State have developed and tested a software for electronic voting.
Coded ?e-ballot?, the device has the potential of being used to conduct election in Nigeria and the world over.

The students, Tosin Komolafe and Emeka Osigwe of the Computer Science Engineering Department in the School of Information and Communication, developed and tested the software to conduct the students union government elections for the president, 18 senators and other offices into different schools, programmes and students groups on campus.

Komolafe described it as a very low-cost and user-friendly programme that could reduce human error in voting and counting process.
His colleague, Emeka, added that it was easy to programme and could be used to conduct voting anywhere in the world, and that they were driven into this invention after observing ?very long queues, stressful waiting, operational inefficiency as well as counting problems associated with manual voting during previous students government elections.

According to the young inventors, the process of voting would require entering a voter ID number, which has to be verified before a pass key would be issued electronically.
The students also said the key could be used to log on to the voting system, which would allow for only one time voting.

They further explained that the web-based system works on a web browser and give access to every potential voter to vote from anywhere there is access to the internet or intranet service.
Commenting on the invention, the interim president of AUN, Bettina Sawhill Espe, said: ?What has been accomplished should be heralded not only in Nigeria but around the world.This team of American University of Nigeria students, designed, produced and implemented the first system which performed brilliantly?.

Elections results were available the moment voting was completed and there was no question or challenges to the ballots. We are incredibly proud of their work?.
Similarly, Director of Students Affairs, Dr. David Kosoko expressed happiness with both the invention and the result of the elections and described it as hitch-free, ...... -free and rigging- free.

Hello everyone,

I would like to tell you about free web hosting service I use now.
Register here: hxxp: www. 000webhost. com/474781. html or copy and paste on your browser

They give 1500 MB of disk space and 100 GB data transfer.  I am now using them for about 3 months and never seen any downtime of server problems.  There is no any kind of advertising on my pages too, so I think its worth to signup.
