Abstract

If a closer look is taken to the voting system of India, one will find that, it is as flawed, as the ones implementing the procedures, thereby depriving the citizens of India, one of the most important ideals of democracy, i.e, “FREE AND FAIR ELECTION”. This is mainly due to the unfair practices, undertaken by the so-called “Powerful” and “Influential” people, involved in the system. Hence this project aims, to transfer the responsibilities of conducting the entire “ELECTION VOTING” procedure, to computing machines, which are expected to behave in an impartial way. Moreover, since this project will make the system totally online, and users will be able to vote, sitting behind their personal devices, rather than physically going to the polling booth, there is a very high probability that this project will encourage, more participation of Indian citizens, in the voting process, thereby making the election truly “Free And Fair”. This project analyses various real-time implementation problems and provides a solution for each. This project also introduces, a concept of “RANDOM PARTY CODE”, in order to enhance the integrity of the system, i.e , to prevent the adversary from comprehending the vote, even if he/she manages to take a look at the vote. This project also gives an ideal solution for “PUBLIC VOTING”.
