Abstract


In a variety of situations that require the administration of human beings, it is necessary that decisions be taken after some form of election has been conducted. This is particularly relevant in small and medium organizations such as boards of companies, senates of institutions of higher learning and in various arms of government. In these situations voters indicate their preferences by casting either yes or no votes. Indecisions can be handled after collating these two types of votes. The machine described here was built around a microcontroller that was appropriately programmed to accept inputs from switches which represent the voter’s preferences. The collation and display of results are done automatically as soon as a voter casts his vote. The experimental machine has been designed to handle 255 voters but the hardware and the firmware are easily upgradeable to handle more voters.
