JKUAT Society of Engineering Students (SES) held its annual hand-over elections on Tuesday February 27, 2018 and for the first time in the history of the society the exercise was done electronically. The society used an electronic voting system that had been designed and built by final year engineering students; Koi Anyango, Frederick Kirimi, Lucy Masaba and Pascal Aloo. The whole exercise which normally takes close to two hours, took only 40 minutes.
The system is an electronic voting box with a touch display that allows the voter to conduct the voting exercise with ease. The votes are instantly tallied on the onboard computer and stored in an onboard database and immediately the last person votes, the results are ready to be announced. Read more here.
