Review of Related Literature
A vote system or electoral system is a method by which electors make a pick between options. frequently in an election. Many research workers have done work in the vote system. Academians like Peter Neumann focal point on the enormousness of the job one faces when seeking to plan and implement a truly secure vote system. Neumann gives a list of suggestions for “generic vote criteria” which suggests that a vote system should be so difficult to fiddle with and so immune to failure that no commercial system is likely of all time to run into the demands. and developing a suited usage system would be highly hard and prohibitively expensive. Voting system must bring forth human-readable hardcopy paper consequences. which can be verified by the elector before the ballot is cast. and manually recounted subsequently if necessary.
Many voting systems uses equipments and theses equipments are divided into 5 types. 1. Paper- based vote: The elector gets a clean ballot and utilize a pen or a marker to bespeak he desire to vote for which campaigner. Hand-counted ballots is a clip and labour devouring procedure but it is easy to manufactured paper ballots and the ballots can be retained for verifying. this type is still the most common manner to vote. 2. Pry voting machine: Degree machine is curious equipment. and each lever is assigned for a corresponding campaigner. The elector pulls the lever to canvass for his favourite campaigner. The sort of voting machine can number up the ballots automatically. Because its interface is non user-friendly plenty. hiving some preparation to electors is necessary. 3. Direct entering electronic vote machine: This type. which is abbreviated to DRE. integrates with keyboard: touch screen. or buttons for the elector imperativeness to canvass.
Some of them put in vote records and numbering the ballots is really rapidly. But the other DRE without keep vote records are doubted about its truth. 4. Punch card: the elector uses metallic hole-punch to plug a hole on the clean ballot. It can number ballots automatically. but if the voter’s perforation is uncomplete. the consequence is likely determined wrongfully. 5. Optical vote machine: after each elector fills a circle correspond to their favourite campaigner on the clean ballot. this machine selects the darkest grade on each ballot for the ballot so computes the entire consequence. This sort of machine counts up ballots quickly. However. if the elector fills over the circle. it will take to the mistake consequence of optical-scan.

Automated Elections implemented in Baguio ( University of Cordilleras ) . Winners were already known right after the last ballot was cast during an machine-controlled election at the University of the Cordilleras ( UC-BCF ) . Four of its colleges utilized a computerized system during the Supreme Student Government ( SSG ) Elections last July 24. 2007 while the Supreme Court is still settling the P1. 3 billion deserving cybernation issues on the 2007 elections. the UC-BCF has proven that mechanization of elections is plausible. The automated canvass system was created under the supervising of Engr. Eliseo Ruiz of the College of Information and Computing Sciences ( CICS ) . ”At first it was a stand-alone system when developed and used in 1997. but in 1999. we were able to implement a web system for it. ” said Engr. Ruiz. CICS was certified by the Commission on Higher Education as the Center of Development for Excellence ( CODE ) for Information Technology. UC-CICS has been sharing the plan to other colleges for the past four old ages.
This 2006. technology. accounting and nursing pupils were able to profit from the mechanization procedure. “All the pupils did was input their pupil ID figure and click beside the name of their chosen campaigner. “said SSG Adviser Mr. Benjamin Alo. who besides disclosed that the system was safe. To avoid winging electors. pupil ID entree Numberss were automatically blocked upon voting. Votes were automatically tallied ( hypertext transfer protocol: //www. uc-bcf. edu. ph/Students/News?

Mindanao State University – SSC Voting SystemWriter: Jelly Ann Echavez. Philip Cesar Garay. ArbieRatunilFor many old ages since this University founded. this establishment had already conducted many major university pupil council election of officers for the MSUN Supreme Student Council. It was so apparent unluckily that the turnover of these said elections had turned to be slow and boring. It was slow because of the undermentioned scenarios: 1. ) The Election is done manually. so the electioneering is devouring a large sum of clip. in fact in most of the elections the electioneering of ballots took a long hours and more clip consume. 2. ) Miscount of ballots that may do for under ballot or otherwise over ballot. 3. ) Mistally and misstated ballot for a campaigner. It was difficult and tiresome on the portion of the election facilitators because it needs a batch of energy and clip to get the better of the complexness of the readyings and the retention of the election down to the electioneering of ballots. So with these jobs the call for a alteration is considered.
Since this University adapted many new classs and one of these classs is Bachelor of Science in Information Technology. As a pupil in this class there is a call and a demand for reformation and revival of the bing traditional and manual vote system. The execution of the computerized vote system is the reply for this pandemonium. Rationale This undertaking was founded and created to replace the bing manual vote system that had produced incommodiousness non merely to the electors but besides to the election facilitators. 1. ) The system is responsible of finding the genuineness of the elector except for his/her studentID and watchword. 2. ) The list of classs is already predefined in the system upon when elector or pupil is registered. 3. ) Candidates’ record after the election will be saved and will be manually deleted on the system. 4. ) Student that officially registered as elector can merely vote. 5. ) The system is created with a security degree. watchwords of some system services are implemented.
6. ) A campaigner must foremost use as campaigner before registering as a elector. 7. ) This system was configured for standalone PC’s merely. The demand to plan and do a computerized vote system may be able to carry on the election in a fast. correct. and convenient manner and to accomplish good and truth in its consequences. Hypothesis of the survey Computerized vote systems are widely used in elections. This paper describes utilizing a computerized vote system as the footing for a undertaking in an Information Technology class. Through the preparation of this system the pupils are so confident that the whole electoral procedure will non merely be fast and promptly but most of all accurate and precise. Significance of the survey It is the concern of the research workers to construct a computerized vote system that will be used by the Supreme Student Council of MSU at Naawan. It will assist to extinguish frauds and manoeuvres in polling sing that the computing machine will be the one to number the ballots.
