Electoral Reform

Since the return to democracy in 1999, various calls for electoral reform have been made. In this light, the Electoral Act 2010 was passed following the recommendations of the Electoral Reform Committee in 2008. The Electoral Act has been amended a number of times since 2010.

Apart from the legislature, the electoral management body in Nigeria, Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), has also made efforts at electoral reform, including incorporating technology into voter registration and accreditation.

The main push for electoral reform in recent years has come in the form of the Electoral Act Amendment Bill Bill which is yet to be passed into law.

Our work in relation to electoral reform involves research and documentation of previous electoral reforms in order to educate the public, research to identify gaps and recommend further areas of reform, and advocacy among key stakeholders.
