Insecurity, rigging and violence continue to mar electoral processes in developing nations. It has been difficult to enforce security and transparency in the voting process. This paper proposes a secure and automated bimodal voting system. The system uses three security layers, namely, a unique ID code, a token passcode that expires every five minutes and biometrics (iris and fingerprint). A scanner captures the fingerprint and iris of eligible voters. The fingerprint and iris images stored along with the corresponding particulars in a database. The software implemented is a .net managed code in C#. The result of this system shows the system is transparent, fast and fraud-free. The proposed method had a failure to enroll (FTE) and a failure to capture (FTC) of zero.
