Technology as a tool of enhancing public confidence in Elections in Africa


Periodic elections are a common phenomenon in democratic African states. In a move to enhance public confidence in elections which in most cases are hotly contested, states have continued to embrace technology aimed at reducing electoral fraud, and to boost credibility of election outcomes.

This public dialogue provides an opportunity to explore elections in Africa, as well as the use of technology as a tool of enhancing public confidence and credibility of election results in Kenya and Botswana. The dialogue further explores the question of security of personal data and right to privacy in the wake of digital media as a political campaign tool.
