The problem of voting in Nigeria is still critical in terms of safety and security. This paper deals with the design and implementation of a software based voting system using fingerprint authentication in order to provide a high performance with high security to the voting system. The design incorporates a database which holds the personal data of every registered voter, the Graphic User Interface (GUI) which provides a user friendly interface. The proposed EVM also allows the voters to scan their fingerprint for authentication, which is then matched with an already saved image within a database. The software is implemented completely as a .NET managed code in C# programming language with database Microsoft SQL Server support. Upon completion of the voting process, the results from the different polling centre are uploaded to a central server for verification and onward publishing using a website that is accessible by all. At the end of this work, we hope that the proposed electronic voting machine which is fast, efficient and fraud-free can be adopted for the conduction of elections.
