The College of Computer Studies of the Panpacific University North Philippines is conducting elections for the Computer Wizard Society (CWS) officers every year. Paper-based voting system is currently used in electing officers for the CWS elections, which is laborious, time consuming and is unsecured in terms of the accuracy of the election results.
The effectiveness of e-voting system compared to the manual voting before, the CWS advisers will encode the names of the candidates with a circle before it, which will be shaded by the voters in a piece of small paper. These papers will be the voting paraphernalia that will be distributed in each classroom of the CCS students by the CCS faculty members. After the election, all the distributed paper ballots will be collected by the CCS faculty members and they will tally the number of votes gained by the candidates through manual counting and after that, the results will be given to the CWS Adviser who will then announce the newly elected officers. In order to resolve these situations, the technology of electronic voting (e-voting) comes into existence. By using information technology, e-voting system can cast and count votes with higher convenience and efficiency, even make the electoral procedures simple and reduce the mistake rate of ballot examination. The studies show that there are lots of advantages through the use of e-voting system. Some of its advantages are; it is faster and convenient to use, e-voting has higher security. It also lessens human error and produces accurate election results.

Analysis of an Electronic Voting System TADAYOSHI KOHNO∗ A DAM S TUBBLEFIELD† DAN S. WALLACH§ February 27, 2004 AVIEL D. RUBIN‡ Abstract With significant U.S. federal funds now available to replace outdated punch-card and mechanical voting systems, municipalities and states throughout the U.S. are adopting paperless electronic voting systems from a number of different vendors. We present a security analysis of the source code to one such machine used in a significant share of the market. Our analysis shows that this voting system is far below even the most minimal security standards applicable in other contexts. We identify several problems including unauthorized privilege escalation, incorrect use of cryptography, vulnerabilities to network threats, and poor software development processes. We show that voters, without any insider privileges, can cast unlimited votes without being detected by any mechanisms within the voting terminal software. Furthermore, we show that even the most serious of our outsider attacks could have been discovered and executed without access to the source code. In the face of such attacks, the usual worries about insider threats are not the only concerns; outsiders can do the damage.......

Prstv Voting System

...The Irish Electoral system of PR-STV is Fundamentally Flawed and should be replaced by the Single Member Plurality System In today’s environment of political apathy and scepticism it is particularly important that we scrutinise our political policies and procedures, so as to bolster a confidence of our countries governance in its people. Electoral systems are perhaps one of the most important aspects of the political process as they are the people’s main mechanism for having their voices heard. The main challenge for any political system is to strive to assist in creating a government that is an accurate representation of its citizen’s desires and future hopes for its political direction while ensuring stable governance. This essay will discuss the Irish electoral system of Proportionate Representation through the Single Transferable Vote (PRSTV) and whether a Single Member Plurality (SMP) system is a viable and worthwhile alternative. By first giving a brief history of the Irish electoral system as well as an explanation of how both systems operate. Then laying out some of these electoral systems advantages as well as disadvantages. Dáil Éireann and its members, Teachtai Dála (TDs) have been elected by the PRSTV electoral system since Irish independence in 1922. There are two main reasons for this. In the early 1900s a period in which Ireland was going through great political change PRSTV had historical support by the nationalist movement, which had the biggest......

Voting System

...CHAPTER 2 FOREIGN LITERATURE “Electronic Voting Literature” Voting on the internet using PC's everyday offers only weak security, but its main disadvantages are in the areas of anonymity and protection against coercion and/or vote selling. The Presidential elections of 2000 brought national attention to problems with current American methods of casting and counting votes in public elections. Most people believe that the current system should be changed; there is much disagreement on how such changes should be made. Dr. Michael Shamos of CMU provides a sharp counterpoint [6] to Neumann and Mercuri's views. While his “Six Commandments” summary of requirements for a voting system is very similar to others' requirements, he's less afraid of the catastrophic failures and sweeping fraud made possible by imperfections in electronic voting machines actually occurring in a real election. Shamos is also much less impressed with paper ballots than are Neumann and Mercuri. He places a great deal of faith in decentralization to make fraud difficult to commit and easy to detect. Dr. Shamos even likes DRE machines. (We must take into account the fact that this paper was written ten years ago, long before the 2000 elections and before more modern mathematical results like Chaum's; some of Dr. Shamos' opinions may have changed since then. While Dr. Neumann's talk cited here is of similar age, his pessimism with regard to machines has had little reason for change.) Rebecca Mercuri......

Electronic Voting System in Punp

...Original Question: What is the best way to manually count ballot papers in block vote (BV) systems? With first-past-the-post systems, one can easily pile the ballots for each candidate, and then tally the totals. Where there is more than one vote recorded on ballot papers, some kind of tallying system seems unavoidable. What techniques are used in counting block vote ballots elsewhere?  Introduction “Vote counting is one of the most crucial stages in the election process. Failure to complete the count and transmit results in a quick, transparent and accurate manner can jeopardize public confidence in the elections and will directly affect whether candidates and political parties accept the final results.” (The ACE Encyclopedia) Block Voting (BV) belongs to the “family” of plurality / majority Electoral Systems (The other two big “families” being proportional, or mixed Electoral Systems) and is in fact a first-past-the-post (FPTP) system with the difference that it occurs in multi-member districts with voters having as many votes as there are positions to be filled. In a five-member constituency for example, the five candidates with the largest number of votes are elected, regardless of the actual percentage level of votes they receive. In BV systems, voters are usually free to vote for individual candidates regardless of party affiliation, but they are not entitled to cast the same vote more than once. Voters are also most often free to not use all the votes they are......

...UNIVERSITY OF THE PHILIPPINES A CASE STUDY ON MANAGEMENT ACCOUNTING BACKGROUND OF THE CASE In February 2000, the Vice President for Planning and Finance (the VP) was informed that the CY 2000 budget was cut by the Senate. Details of the budget show that there is a decrease for the Maintenance and Other Operating Expenses (MOOE) for both the academic programs and the UP system administration (UPSA), as well as for the six (6) autonomous campuses of UP, including UP College of Baguio. Academic Programs & UPSA Autonomous Campuses CY 2000 403,561,000.00 250,000,000.00 653,561,000.00 % 62% 38% CY 1999 602,124,000.00 313,801,000.00 915,925,000.00 % 66% 34% Decrease (198,563,000.00) (63,801,000.00) (262,364,000.00) % Decrease -33% -20% -29% While reviewing the CY 1999 MOOE allocation, she determined that allocating it based on the number of students alone is not an efficient way to do so. Hence, she called on the Chancellors of the different autonomous campuses and the Dean of UP Baguio to discuss with them the reduced budget and how will the reduced budget for autonomous campuses be allocated more effectively. Each Chancellor gave his/her own allocation method, taking into consideration the specific needs of his/her campus. Moreover, the VP knows that aside from the Chancellors, other parties are also involved in the budget allocation, such as the Congress, which is politically-driven. The VP also asked the officers from the......

Case 10-4 University of the Philippines

...Case 10-4 University of the Philippines This recommends that the Vice President of Finance should allocate the available funds to the autonomous campuses based on the objective criteria to be discussed in the succeeding sections since it is most reflective of the priority needs of each unit with regard to their MOOE expenditures. The VP of Finance could further test the new allocation for reasonableness by reviewing the actual expenditures reported by each constituent unit during the past year. Background Due to the 33% decrease in the MOOE budget of the University of the Philippines System, the Vice President of Finance is now tasked to formulate a new budget that will objectively allocate MOOE among the different campuses. From the P250 million left for distribution to the 6 campuses, 10% will be set aside for an Academic Program Improvement leaving only P225 million available funds for distribution. On a recent discussion with the UP Chancellors the following concerns have been brought up whic h will be taken to account when the funds are distributed.  An across the board, pro-rata budget cut on all campuses will carry over any unfair budget allocation of last year to the upcoming year.  Allocation based on number of students does not take into ac count activities of other campuses such us having extra revolving fund which could help cover some of the MOOE expenses of the respective campus. Moreover, some campuses have does not have many students but......
