The Embedded Systems and Internet of Things (IoT) has contributed for major advancement in interconnecting electronic devices and other appliances without any human intervention and also transferring of data is done at ease. One of the major problems faced in dense populated countries which are not given much consideration is the voting method. The current problem faced in the electronic voting system is that they do not have any electronically voter verification method to cast their respective votes. This may lead to casting of fake votes which will cause unnecessary problems in the elections. Thus the proposed system is implemented with the help of fingerprint verification of the voter. The voter has to verify his identity by placing his finger in the fingerprint sensor. The fingerprint data is verified with the help of the data stored in Aadhaar database. Only if the fingerprint matches the voting machine is enabled and allowed to cast his vote. The voters who are allowed to vote is also stored in a database which can be later verified while counting the votes to remove the fake votes casted. If the fingerprint does not match, a buzzer alert is given and also the identity of the person is verified physically by checking the Aadhaar and other identity details to confirm his identity, if the person also fails in this process thy person is not allowed to vote thereby reducing the chance of casting fake votes. A LCD is also interfaced to display the necessary commands and the data. Thus the proposed system offers maximum security and efficiency.
