Recently, the urge for e-voting has been described to be the inevitable future of electioneering in most countries of the world. Despite all its good features, like the other voting systems it has been seen to also be susceptible to rigging and fraud. Some of its undesirable features include not allowing recounting of votes after election in case of a protest like the others. Another issue is that of erroneous software which can greatly affect the result of the election. All these is further compounded by the fact that voting systems deals with very large amount of data that is collected from a distributed population source hence the raw data are extremely difficult to comprehend and therefore monitor. This paper attempts to solve this problem using a TreeMap based visualization technique to monitor in real-time the distributed balloting and voting processes. The paper proved that TreeMap algorithms can be configured and deployed on the central server to monitor effectively the voting transactions in real-time and hence enable transparency.
