The trend in the technological development has made the use of information technology and supporting devices mandatory in virtually all aspects of life. Yet the development of an Information system can be rejected by users due to several factors, that can be costly if left unsolved. This study investigates the determinant factors that can influence the successful adoption of electronic voting technology in the organisational context using the managerial and operational staff of the electoral commission for the data collection thorough a survey study. Based on previous studies on adoption of technology, four key determinants factors or variables i.e. Technological Readiness, Organisational Readiness, Environmental Factors, and Perceived Benefits were identified from theories of Diffusion of Innovations, Technology-Organisation-Environment framework, and Iacovou et al. (1995) model to develop a model of organisational adoption of electronic voting technology. Past studies in the area of technology adoption have equally identified other important factors that can influence adoption of technology such as user participation in system development and ICT training and Skills. The study extend the model with these two factors and tested for mediation and indirect effects in the model relationships using ICT training and Skills being a critical factors in the success of any information technology adoption, especially in the developing countries such as Nigeria as shown from previous studies. The proposed model consists of eleven hypothesized structural relationships-direct and indirect. A total of 500 questionnaires was distributed for this study between the two major categories, i.e. Managerial and operational staff. A Partial Least Structural Equation Modelling method of analysis was use to investigate the causal, mediating and moderating relationships between the latent variables. The results showed that all the determinants factors positively influence the electronic voting technology adoption success. Based on the results obtained, a model of information technology adoption known as E-voting adoption is proposed. The theoretical and practical implications were finally discussed, while necessary suggestions on future research were recommended
