The aim of this study is to design a secured electronic voting system using multimodal biometrics. In recent years, information technology has greatly affected all aspects of life, and to a largeextent, this includes politics. In order to elect people to various positions different methods have been set up,with researchers continually trying to find improvement to the existing methods. The most recent method tobe developed is electronic voting (e-voting). It is meant to phase out outdated paper

E-voting systems endeavour to make elections simple while reducing the total cost of the election. Designing an air-tight and reliable e-voting system is therefore a great task, in that, the system that must be developed must protect the privacy of the voter, be easily understood and used by the entire voting populace -no matter who they are or where they come from. A multimodal biometric system (fingerprint and facial recognition) was used in this paper to improve the security of an E-voting system
