Mbamala C. V.

Abstract: Violence, defacing and littering of institution?s environment during student union election campaign have been the problem faced by manual system of voting in our institutions. In this paper we proposed an online voting system which is a paperless form of voting that will meet the electoral needs of the student union government. The prototyping model was adopted as the methodology for designing the application and MYSQL and HTML as a coding platform. It was tested to work using web browser thus WAMP server together with PHP. The system generated a more convenient voter and candidate registration interface, voter storage and count, campaign and manifest page plus immediate result compilation. The proposed system harnesses and utilizes the immense power of ICT techniques to create a striking impact in the way electoral activities are being conducted in Nigerian institutions. The goal of the system is tailored at establishing an efficient and effective electronic voting system aimed at improving students ?government democracy, and reducing electoral irregularities and malpractices in students? union elections.
