CHAPTER I
THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND
INTRODUCTION
Computer technology has been a great help to the improvement of one’s life. Most establishments, corporations and institutions had developed their own use of such technology to help themselves work more efficiently with less time and effort, resulting in better production, profit, and a more satisfied clientele.  One example of computer technology is the creation of a computer system. A design, fit for the company’s needs as well as for the customer’s. A system that will help personnel work more efficiently especially in accessing and retrieving data in and less time as possible.  The creation of   an Automated SSC Election System of   ISU-Roxas will help the staff’s work a lot easier and more effective because of the automation of tally of votes of students during the election period.  Using computers/machines, they would be the one to tally and transmit the votes to the electoral board without human intervention.

Election is a beginning and an ending. A beginning of hope and an end of sacrifices. People have the ability to change our world by using the automated electoral system mechanisms which significantly reduce the chances of errors, because vote counting is based on an internal machine count rather than on individual ballots. THEORETICAL FRAMEWORK

In this study, the researcher aimed to develop a system on a Automated Voting in which the whole university will be benefited. The researcher also aimed to change the traditional way of computing the votes of students using to avoid errors and to know the result faster. Statement of the problem

In Local Election particularly the Town Election, the process of counting of votes is not easy due to the systems used, which is the traditional way of counting. The said counting is performed manually. They consumed more time and money just to perform the task.

The existing system is usually done after 2 days. They consume 1 day for voting and 1 day for counting. Because of the manual counting, the result is inaccurate. It causes duplicity of votes or errors.

But in daily lives of human being, they always require doing their works faster in order to obtain their objectives on time.
On the other hand, computer system can perform tasks faster and display results after a short time. From these, this project consists of designing a database system which can do all those operations quickly and make tasks to be performed with all needed facilities: correctness, speed, with fewer personnel and low cost.

In general election exists anywhere in the world but most of them are build based on foreign country laws.

The main purpose of this study is to develop a Automated Voting System for Isabela State University-Roxas Campus, Roxas, Isabela. The research seeks to answer the following questions: 1. What is the proposed SSC automated voting system?

2. Does the system lessen the work of the election administrators and personnel? 3. Does the system lessen the error?
4. Does the system do more work than the election personnel? Statement of Assumption
1. The proposed system will design a simple and accurate operation. 2. The proposed system will secure the votes of the voters.
3. The proposed system/automated voting system will lessen the burdens of election personnel in computing the votes manually. 4. The proposed system will make the user’s performance more efficient, accurate and lesser time will be consumed. 5. The proposed system will do more work than the election personnel because the system will help the user to compute it automatically by just clicking the desired button for the operation. Significance of the Study

Today the world has become a smaller village of computer and technology. Each day, people are facing with some kind of new challenges in life for example the changing of different traditions by using different technologies. As technology changes, lifestyle also changes. If we want a better...
