In many countries, Electronic voting systems have gained significant recognition as a potential solution to enhance electoral processes’ transparency, efficiency, and credibility. Elections in Nigeria have been fraught with anomalies even before the advent of the fourth republic, the 2023 general elections inclusive. This paper aims to assess the effectiveness of electronic voting systems in Nigeria by examining the challenges and opportunities associated with their implementation. Methodologically, the explanatory research design was adopted whereby a comprehensive analysis of existing literature and case studies was carried out. This study beamed light on the key issues faced in adopting electronic voting systems in Nigeria and explores their potential benefits. The findings of this research contribute to the current discourse on electoral reforms and provide insights for policymakers, electoral commissions, and stakeholders to make informed decisions regarding the future of electronic voting systems in Nigeria.
