Abstract:
This paper examined the role of geospatial technologies in the management of elections in Nigeria with a view to identifying these technologies and evaluates the extent of using them in electoral process in the country. The research work, relies on secondary data. Literature by experts in the field of geospatial technology was consulted while journals and internet search formed the bulk of the reference made. It was revealed that though Geospatial technology is useful in various human endeavor, the use of the technologies in Nigeria context is limited. The paper concluded that efforts should be made to harness these technologies such as GIS, GPS and Remote Sensing and deploy such in the conduct of elections for more effective and efficient delivery of service. The interacting challenges militating against the use of the technologies need to be addressed
