A Real-time Ballot Box Monitoring is a system which tracks and monitors the location of ballot box during the voting process in real-time with GSM and GPS sensors. In this work a tracking device using Seeeduinomicro-controller and embedded software was developed. A monitoring station where the ballot box is constantly monitored online was also developed using web application. It will enable ballot papers and important electoral materials to be better monitored, hence making election results more credible and will reduce fraudulent rigging and manipulation of election process in Nigeria.
