Elections in African had been like an unsurmountable mountain for decades due to a myriad of problems bedeviling the continent. Some of the issues the continent had to contend with are inadequate infrastructural development, human capacity, relevant legislation, lack of political will, inaccessible geographical terrain etc. The introduction of Biometric Election within the continent had greatly impacted the voters’ registration exercise as well as the outcome of general elections. This study examines how the technology has enhanced voters’ confidence in election, curb voters’ multiple registration and underage voting, increase electorate participation and explore the way forward to deepen and strengthen democracy within the continent.
