Abstract

This paper presents an effective secure and fear free e-voting model based on cloud computing. On implementation it will facilitate those voters who are willing but not in to the position to cast their votes owing to their absence from head quarter for reasons beyond their control. In this paper e-Voting model has been integrated with AADHAR CARD or Unique Identification (UID) card data base using cloud. By integrating e-Voting model with cloud infrastructure and AADHAR CARD database, percentage of polling would increase and can provide authentic electoral voting mechanism to satisfy the need of the voters. Cloud computing would also accelerates the e-Voting system because of the new architecture and secure technology. It would enable users and developers to utilize computing resources that are virtualized and serve the needs of the voters via the internet.
