In this paper, an online voting authentication technique is proposed which provides biometric as well as password security to voter accounts. Voters are first identified by their facial image by using PCA. Second step is the fingerprint recognition. Third one is steganographic method. The basic idea of steganographic method is to merge the secret key and pin number with the cover image which produces a stego image which looks same as the cover image. The cover image is a biometric measure, such as a fingerprint image. The secret key and pin number is extracted from the stego image at the server side to perform the voter authentication function.
