The management of the March 4, General Election was both a test and a triumph.
For the first time, we conducted six elections in one day, under the new constitutional dispensation. It stretched us to the limits- in logistics, personnel, resources and technological systems. Preparing for such a congested electoral calendar was a race against time that I will never forget.
We had managed to register 14.3 million voters electronically using the Biometric Voter Registration, despite the challenges in acquiring and implementing the technology. This was a big plus. But then we were confronted by technological glitches with the complimenting technology of Electronic Voter Identification (EVID).
