Intelligent Polling System Using GSM Technology
Voting is the foundation of a democratic system of government, whether the system uses direct or representative governance. To increase the efficiency and accuracy of voting procedures, computerized voting systems were developed to help collecting and counting the votes. For a variety of reasons, voters may be unable to attend voting booths physically, but need to vote remotely, for example, from home or while traveling abroad. Hence, there is great demand for remote voting procedures that are easy, transparent, and, most importantly, secure. Numerous electronic voting schemes have been proposed in the past, but most of them have failed to provide voter authentication in an efficient and transparent way.
