EC urged to deploy RFID for next election

The Electoral Commission (EC) has been advised to roll out a radio-frequency identification (RFID) scheme for Election 2016 to guarantee the integrity of and public confidence in the biometric registration and verification system.

Consequently, the next government should seek funds to support the EC to deploy information technology to run a credible, transparent, as well as free and fair general election.

Mr Haruna Iddrisu, the Minister of Communications, who gave the advice at the second Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Information Technology Association of Ghana (ITAG) in Accra, stressed that the move had become necessary if Ghana’s electoral process was to be effectively driven by Information and Communications Technology (ICT).

He tasked IT professionals to make meaningful suggestions and recommendations to the EC to ensure that the electoral and democratic process was improved and further deepened.

Mr Iddrisu suggested that it should be made possible for all the polling stations in the 275 constituencies to be equipped with computers and other ICT tools to reduce cases of multiple registration and voting and other forms of electoral fraud.

He expressed optimism that an image recognition system would assist in giving meaning to the “one man, one vote” policy.

“We expect that by 2016, the EC must move away from the bar code to the RFID system,” he said.

RFID is the use of a wireless non-contact system that uses radio frequency electro-magnetic fields to transfer data from a tag attached to an object for the purposes of automatic identification and tracking.

The tag contains electronically stored information which can be read from up to several metres away.

Unlike a bar code, the tag does not need to be within line of sight of the reader and may be embedded in the tracked object. The tag could be read if passed near a reader, even if it is covered by the object or not visible.

It could also be read inside a case, carton, box or other container, hundreds at a time, unlike bar codes that can only be read one at a time using current devices.

It doesn't specify the how. I have an RFID in my passport that's covered in foil and hidden offsite of where we live.

RFID will become the norm. Eventually it will go to a implantable chip; hence the reason for my website.

It is inexcusable that the US doesn't require an unforgeable id for voting.

Dunno yet, but it's 8 pages so I'm sure I'll manage to squeeze in some juicy stuff. In a logistical viewpoint it's used to track goods so I'll try to keep it not too outrageous.

Thanks though. cheers.gif Just learned I scored 5 in both English and German. woohoo.gif

Search "digital angel" from a dozen years ago.

There's plenty of room for all God's creatures. Right next to the mashed potatoes!

You can see the desire to implant people with electronics goes back to the first of the last century. They are just coming on strong with it now. Look at this blog post of mine:

I'll answer that.

This particular thread was about RFID. I had a link that fit the conversation, so I shared it.
