Throwing more light on how the modern ballot box works, the Senior High School technical students said “the smart ballot box has two compartments; the part that takes the paper from the voter and the box itself.

The paper compartment has a paper roller made with some PVC pipes, a gear motor, and a sensor to detect the voter’s closeness to the box.

When the voter is about 40cm to the ballot box, the paper compartment is activated to allow the voter to cast his vote. A red light is shown to alert the voter that the system is ready.

When the voter places the paper on the space provided, the system will automatically take the paper from the voter and drop it into the box and count it as one (1) and display the number on a screen for public viewing.
