E-Voting Application

In March 2009, Makerere University Office of the Dean of Students approached the Department of Software Development and Innovation (DSDI) and requested that an application be developed that could help to alleviate among other things election rigging, loss of votes, disparities in regard to how many voters registered and the number of votes counted and any other election malpractices that have plagued the university over the years. The system is supposed to be used in the Makerere University Guild Elections. A prototype of the system was used in the Guild Representative Council elections at the halls of residence where the students were electing student leaders. Basing on this, the system was enhanced and is now ready to be used in the entire Guild elections. Because of the project success, Makerere University administration asked the department to maintain it for future elections that shall be conducted at the university.
