ABSTRACT
This work focused on the media, voting behavior and Nigeria’s international image, using the 2011 general elections in Lagos State as case study. It looked at the media and elections, elections and Nigeria’s International Image and then voting behavior. The work also looked at the various elections that were conducted at different stages of government in the 2011 general elections (that is the national assembly elections, presidential elections and governorship elections). It further examined the voting behavior of the electorates in Lagos State during the 2011 general elections. Hypotheses were tested, and the result indicated that there is a significant relationship between the role of the media and political awareness amongst Lagos State electorates in the 2011 general elections. The study recommends among others the adequate training for media practitioners on how to report issues as they relate to elections.
