EBallot is a biometric voting software made up of four interconnected programs that helps to
organize elections in schools (mostly tertiary level) with much ease, increased security and trust.
Importance of eBallot
- No rejected ballots
Without the use of papers, rejected ballots are 100% avoided since
the software will confirm that the voter actually intends to vote for the selected candidate(s).
Besides, a voter cannot vote for more than one person with respect to a particular position.
- Instant feedback
As soon as a voter is identified, his/her picture and other information are
displayed on a projected screen for everyone to see. As voting progresses, the number of people who have
voted are displayed on screen.
- Cost saving
The printing of ballot papers which cost more is no longer an issue. When there
is a run-off, the security group will just reset the system and voting restarts for the run-off candidates.
- Elimination of multiple voting
By the use of biometric identification and on-screen information display, multiple voting is 100% avoided.
- Quick and smart
The quick and higher responsiveness of the system allows for people to vote fast thereby allowing more people
to vote within a few minutes doing away with long queues.
The Registrar is the backbone of the eBallot biometric voting system centrally making it possible to configure
how and when voting can take place. Ultimately, it defines the task performed by the other programs bundled with the software.
- Registration Assistant
The Registration Assistant is to facilitate the mass registration of the voters before they are ported to the Registrar. The Registration Assistant operates independent of the Registrar and as such must have its own server and client
machines all running the same version of the Registration Assistant software.
- Polling Centre
A Polling Centre "Verification computer" coordinates the voting processes for two Polling Stations. A voter can only vote after being identified by a Polling Centre and directed to a Polling Station to vote.
- Polling Station
The polling station will guide the voter to cast his/her vote.
- One 2.0 GHz PC with RAM of 2GB or better to serve as the server.
- One or more PCs with 1.5GHz CPU and 2GB RAM or better to serve as Centers
- For each Center, a maximum of two PCs each with 1.5GHz CPU and 2GB RAM or better to serve as Station(s)
- Either a pointing device such as mouse. A touch capable screen for the Stations will enhance voter experience.
The software is licensed not sold. The client is required to purchase a license before the software can be used.
