The VOTE PLUS objective is to provide a system which manages the election activity done in a college or a school and its calculation of total vote which is very huge. The users will consume less amount of time when compared to manual paper work through the automated system. This College Voting System In VB.Net language and database in Sql Server is database backend.
The system will take care of all the election activity like voting, adding the candidates name, result, counting of votes in a quick manner.
Data storing is easier. It will be able to check the number of votes for each candidate. Paper work and manual work is reduced. The system is user friendly and easy to use. All the votes will be stored in the database and it avoids any miscalculation.
This project is helpful to computerize the voting activities, modification in any candidates name and it is very helpful in calculating the votes implied for each candidate.
Network based Application
The “VOTE PLUS” software is based on an election activity for each student voting for a particular candidate he wishes to. Each student will be given a unique username and password. As soon as he logins by entering his username and password, a menu form will be shown with its first option as candidate list where all the candidates’ information standing for the election will be shown. Next procedure is the voting section where the user can vote for any candidate he wishes to.
There are 3 categories in the candidate post i.e., President, Secretary, Joint Secretary. The user can vote to any 1 from these 3 categories. The system will not provide the user to vote for more than 1 candidate in each category. This completes the voting procedure. All the data’s are being stored in the database.
Admin has his own username and password. Admin Provides username and password for other user’s .He also has the right to insert candidate’s name. And he also has the right to edit and delete those details to/from the list. The result will be shown. Only admin has the authority to see the results.

“Vote plus” software developed for a school or to a college has been designed to achieve maximum efficiency and reduce the time taken to handle the Election activity. It is designed to replace an existing manual record system thereby reducing time taken for calculations and for storing data. The system uses VB .Net as front end and Microsoft SQL as a backend for the database.
The system is strong enough to withstand regressive yearly operations under conditions where the database is maintained and cleared over a certain time of span. The implementation of the system in the organization will considerably reduce data entry, time and also provide readily calculated reports.
