These Our Indian Election system has undergone a couple of changes from the paper ballot boxes in vogue till the 90's to the present Electronic Voting Machines (EVM). But, sadly, none of them is tamper proof Our Electronic Ballot Box(EBB), unlike the EVM's, wirelessly transfers all the votes that are received to a centralized location that keeps track of all the votes that a particular candidate receives. As a result neither the person in charge of the polling booth nor any person remotely connected to the process has any chance of manipulating the outcome of the polls. The next interesting aspect of our project is the inbuilt capability of our EBB to prevent bogus votes through basic biometric techniques. Fingerprints are scanned by a sensor that helps us identify those culprits who cast bogus votes.
