The electronic voting system provides various advantages for voting and saves significant resources in the process of voting, collecting and counting of ballots. This implementation will provide a secure way for people to vote online, which also eliminates the hassle of physically being present at designated election locations. However, for all the above savings electronic voting systems must provide security in each stage of the process to avoid any compromise of the authenticity of the results. This project aims to provide one such secure framework by implementing a secure online election voting protocol which has the ability to maintain privacy. Also a goal was to use this platform for finding the statistics of who voted and who did not vote. In Short, this is secure, cost saving and easy to use one step online voting system. The project aims to improve features of the current voting system which are currently lacking. The phone or a personal workstation is a better and more convenient option for a user to vote with. Ways to improve the voting system interface should, therefore, be designed and developed in order to make voting more convenient in a secured way.
