Fingerprint based Voting System
The most severe and frequently happening situations while conducting elections is rigging (One person give multiple votes). Right now, we are using an electronic voting machine and to identify people who already gave their vote, people will be given an ink mark on the finger. But today because of rapid development in technology, that can be erased and there is a chance of rigging. Through this project, you are going to create a unique Fingerprint based Voting system in order to avoid the above-mentioned problem. Biometric Finger print devices are used in the Electronic Voting machine for voter verification. We have designed a finger print based voting machine where there is no need for the user to carry his ID which contains his required details. The person at the polling booth needs only to place his Finger on the device, thus allowing the acquisition of an on-spot fingerprint from the voter which serves as an identification. We have designed this project as a prototype only in C#.net and not used any real hardware. We have taken the scanned images for the working of the Fingerprint based Voting System.
PROJECT OUTPUT VIDEO:
The voter enters the machine and pulls a lever to close the curtain to unlocking the voting levers. The pollers then make his or her selection from a list of switches denoting the appropriate candidates or measures. The machine is configured to prevent over votes by locking out other candidates when one candidate’s switch is flipped once the voter is finished and the lever is pulled which opens the curtain and increments the appropriate counters for each candidate and measure also the results are then hand written by the precinct officer at the conclusion of voting.
DISADVANTAGES OF EXISTING SYSTEM:
- Complex voting procedure
- More time to vote
- Recount of voting is not possible
- Expensive to test, complete tests are extremely rare
- Expensive to move and store
- Difficult to test
- Complex to maintain
- Far from secure against vote fraud.
With the aim of conducting democratic election, we proposed the system to Endeavour to improve the easy usage of the voting machine with authentication and an acknowledgement slip will provide for every polling which occurs. And a touch screen is used to give input so it is so highly easy to overcome the button problem.
The system is free from intentional tamper. It is not possible to hack the system. Though this factor depends on the personnel integrity, attempts should be made to make the model as secure as possible. In this machine every user uses his/her finger print. The votes will be successful only after successful verification of their finger print.
ADVANTAGES OF PROPOSED SYSTEM:
- From the existing system, the proposed system is more in the Security, Reliability, Scalability factors.
- The system will not allow the voter to vote two or more candidates.
- The system will allow the user to vote for one time for a particular election.
- The system will authenticate the user through his fingerprint so the user is uniquely identified.
