Abstract: In a traditional voting environment voting process sometimes becomes quite inconvenient due to the reluctance of certain voters to visit a polling booth to cast votes besides involving huge social and human resources. The development of computer networks and elaboration of cryptographic techniques facilitate the implementation of internet voting. In this paper we propose a secure internet voting system that is suitable for voting over the internet. The proposed voting system is based on digital signatures and cryptography approach and the system will be suitable for corporate company having their offices in different cities. The proposed system encompasses three distinct phases - that of registration phase, authentication phase voting phase and counting phase involving parties, the voter, voting server and voting authority.
