E-voting refers to an election or referendum that involves the use of electronic means in at least the casting of the vote. The introduction of e-voting raises some of the same challenges as are faced when applying electronics to any other subject, for example e-government. Politicians or administrators may perhaps expect that a paper version of a certain service or process can simply be taken and put on the Internet.
Unfortunately, the reality is more complex, and nowhere more so than with e-voting.

I enjoy reading biographies but I have over-enjoyed reading the autobiography of the Most Rev. Dr. Asante Antwi. His book, ‘Samuel Asante Antwi – a living story’ is 160-pages of courage, perseverance, patriotism, Christian teachings and achievements of a poor, village boy who saw the heavens as the limit and rose through the firmaments to become the First Presiding Bishop of the Methodist Church, Ghana.
This autobiography can also be described as a biography of Ghana, from 1937, through the formation of the UGCC in 1947, the confidence and pride of a young, nation with an energetic leadership after Independence after 1957, the dictatorship of the 1960s, the short constitutional interludes, coups and more coups before the last push for the longest, most stable period of constitutional rule since 1957.

The 2012 Presidential Candidate of the New Patriotic Party, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has stated that the results of Junior High School students who sat for the recent Basic Education Certificate Examination give credence to why “I have made education, education, education, a high priority of an Akufo-Addo administration.”
According to the NPP flagbearer, “this year’s BECE results are at best, negatively, consistent with the results of previous years, except we have more people failing this year, and facing a very bleak future prospect.”

Dictator Kwame Nkrumah outdid himself last week. He not only flatly refused to free three political prisoners who had been acquitted by Ghana's highest court, but he summarily fired the judge who had presided over their trial.
The defendants, five in all, were charged with treason after Nkrumah was wounded in the shoulder by a bomb in an attempt on his life in August 1962.
