Hardware Implementation of an Eco-friendly Electronic Voting Machine


India is country of different cultures, economies, religion, social disparities and still India is world’s largest democratic country. According to Indian democracy every person has the fundamental right to cast his/her vote to person of his/ her choice. Before the use of voting machine people in India use to cast their vote (whether it is centre election or state election) by putting stamp in front of candidate’s name and photo of their own choice, and then as per the prescribed format the ballot paper is folded and put into the Ballot box. This method takes lots of time in casting and even in counting of votes and also less secure and lots of errors are there. But introduction of Electronic Voting Machine (EVM) changed the whole procedure of casting a vote. EVM completely changed the voting procedure as there was no use of ballot boxes, ballot papers, and stamps, these all things converted to a Ballot unit of EVM. Thus EVM saved cost spend on transportation of large no of ballot boxes, cost spends on papers, cost spends on stamps etc. EVM is easy to store, maintain and transport. Errors of previous voting methods are removed like that of Invalid votes, time taken to casting votes reduced, thus very less problem compared to previous method of voting. Now counting is accurate within much lesser time and no mischief on counting centre. This EVM is also eco-friendly in the sense it requires low voltage to operate and also replaces the tradition system which requires lots of paper work and manual operation. Keil uVision3 and Proteus software are used for this EVM.
