RFID based voting Machine

Aim: To design an advanced voting machine with security feature.

Working Principle:

Here we are designing a fully secured voting machine. The voter’s identification is done by a SMART RF ID card. Which contain the voters ID. As soon as the voter Swipe the card, the µC will check the ID. If the ID is found, the µC will then check for duplicate voting. If duplicate voting is detected buzzer is turn ON and voting is locked. The µC will count the votes and store in its internal memory when the result button is pressed the µC will display the voting result on LCD. If any malpractice/ Booth capturing is observe then the administrator can press the reset button which will lock the voting machine and further voting is suspended.

Secure

Store votes protected by encryption keys longer than those used in most Internet banking security systems – and in seven different instances, so it’s apparent if the vote’s changed in just one of them. Similar safeguards protect vote transmission.

Auditable

In our system, votes leave both an electronic trail and a paper trail (thanks to its built-in printer).

The benefit of an electronic vote is that you can track it from the moment a voter makes his or her selection to when results are published, to check it doesn’t change.

You can also compare electronic results to paper results, to ensure they match. In fact, our system doesn’t just let you scrutinize votes. Parties can also inspect passwords, networks and servers.
