Most of the schools are still using the manual method of electing the student council officers. This process is actually a time consuming and error prone. The solution for the stated problems is to develop an automated system that is easy, accurate and consumes less time.
Scope and Purpose of the Project
This project is an android based and online application system which will allows the students to vote via the internet or using their android phones.
The Web and Android Based Voting System will make the voting process easier and faster. Votes are automatically counted after the student cast its vote, the students have their own accounts and they are given a one-time passcode in order for them to vote.
It will also shorten the time of counting and preparing the reports because the results are generated right after the election has been closed or ended. Printable detailed reports for the canvassing and detailed reports for the winners is one click away. The system can also generate reports for those students who had participated and for those who did not participate in the voting procedures.
A mobile version is also available for download and installation (for android users only), which means that the students do not necessarily need to go to the classroom just to vote. This will make the process comfortable to the part of the students.
