An Internet Based Electronic Voting System

Objective

The objectives of the project are to design, implement and validate an Internet-based electronic voting system that will provide the required services for organizing and conducting a voting process.

The main functionalities that the e-VOTE system will support are ballot generation, specification of voting precincts, voters registration and credential validation, calculation of the vote tally and communication of candidate parties with the public.

The system will be accessible through, mainly, conventional Web browsers, and WAP-enabled mobile phones. Furthermore, it will exhibit a Voting Protocol that can prevent opportunities for fraud or for sacrificing the voter's privacy, by implementing a wide set of security criteria and thus enjoying much of the trust and confidence of voters and process organizers.

Personnel specializing on voting procedures, legal aspects, as well as on the sociological and behavioural aspects of such processes and systems will be employed for testing e-VOTE's acceptability.
