This is a presentation delivered at Pakistan-ICTD Workshop 2013 (http://newt.lums.edu.pk/ictdworkshop2013/).
The main idea behind this presentation is to facilitate electoral reforms in Pakistan. The presentation explains on how the Computerized National ID Card can be used to conduct error-free and transparent election in Pakistan.
I am extremely interested in transforming this idea into a reality. I need help from all the people viewing this to please help me in reaching the right platform at the government level to actually implement this project.
