Elections are unique. They change the fate of nations, influence participation and activism in politics, and deeply affect the lives and attitudes of citizens.
So in this context, here we will provide what are the opinions of people of Pakistan regarding electronic voting and which system do they prefer, also which system is more reliable and flexible, polling system OR e-voting?
Conclusively, as proved by statistics of survey, people of Pakistan preferably wants electronic voting to be organized as a voting system for electioneering process.
If electronic voting will be introduced in Pakistan it will reduce the errors in voting, time and effort needed to calculate election results and will improve the reliability and accuracy of the results.
By using Biometric system of voting we can give a fair chance to every leader to win on the basis of his/her capability and not on the basis of strength of money and power.
Although there are some limitations in e-voting systems which must be catered.
Election; E-Voting OR Ballot Paper System Pros n Cons
Simplest way of casting votes.
Paper ballots are easily understood by voters and are inherently voter verified.
The paper ballot is the official record of the vote.
Casting of bogus votes.
Time consuming and slow.
High rate of result tempering.
Polling stations taken over by party loyalties.
Cyber crimes, viruses.
May cause errors in calculations.
84% said No they have not trusted last election results.
Remaining 16% had trusted the results.
From the total population:
54% of the total sample said they had trusted election results if biometric system was used.
whereas, 16% said No.
remaining 30% said Maybe.
Convenience sampling and descriptive analysis has been used as a statistical technique.
Face to face surveys with people of Pakistan, and from various countries around the world.
Interviews and questioning with government officials of Pakistan like NADRA.
In contrast to polling system (ballot paper system) e-voting (biometric system) is more flexible, accurate, error free, speedy and above all cannot be corrupted easily.
But despite of the advantages there exist some limitations to this system in Pakistan which we have observed.

NADRA Official's Perspective
E-voting setup cannot be organized so easily.
Lack of funds.
E-voting is better than polling system.
