1. Project Background
Information technology has played a vital role throughout the world and so in our country. Short Message Service (SMS) is the text communication service component of phone, web or mobile communication systems, using standardized communications protocols that allow the exchange of short text messages between fixed line or mobile phone devices. The use of SMS as data application in the world is enormous, with 2.4 billion active users, or 74% of all mobile phone subscribers. Therefore, there is the need of a significant alternative to this conventional system in the delivery of trusted elections. This paper develops an SMS Based Voting System that can be used in conducting a trustworthy, secure and robust election. This will allow a fully automated SMS Based Voting System where electoral vote counts are done instantly by the end of Election Day. The design requires the use of a national SIM card module during the electoral process. Using the design for a typical election scenario, the evaluation results show a Voting System that can be used for efficient processing and fast delivery of result within less than 24 hours.
