Abstract:
The paper examined the social acceptability of the technologies for electoral administration with a view to determining the level of preparedness of electorates in accepting new technologies among others. The study covered six states, namely: Anambra, Bauchi, Benue, Kano, Lagos and Rivers states selected from the six geopolitical zones. A set of questionnaire was administered on 820 registerable adults in the selected states to elicit information on factors determining the acceptability of the technologies among others. About 0.05% of registrants according to the 2006 voters’ registration in each of the Local Government Councils with the highest registrants from each state were purposively selected. Secondary data were sourced from Electoral journals of Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. The results among others showed that majority of respondents in Anambra (56.7%), Bauchi (73.8%), Benue (84.4%), Kano (74.8%), Lagos (86.8%) and Rivers (86.0%) preferred modern technological devices to manual techniques (F = 3.71, p
