Integration of Biometric sensor with Aadhar for Voting Process


With the concurrence and the consent of the Election Commission of India, Biometric sensor can be integrated with Aadhar system, along with the EVM (Electronic Voting Machine), to ensure the authenticity of the voters and to avoid challenged (Fake) votes. In our existing election system, the main challenge we face is the problem of challenged votes. This issue can be addressed by implementing Biometric sensor along with the EVM. As the majority of the citizens are provided with Aadhar card, which consists of the finger print pattern, along with the other necessary details, it is easy for the sensor to be synchronized with the Aadhar database. The proposed system is implemented with the Biometric sensor, which identifies the finger print pattern, once the voter places his left hand index finger. The sensor is integrated with the data of that polling booth alone. Thereby, the search and retrieval time process can be minimized. The polling officer who monitors the green signal and the beep sound from the sensor allow the voter to proceed to vote. Once the sensor establishes the authenticity of the voter to cast his vote. Otherwise, the red light on the EVM indicates that he/she is not valid voter.
