Acknowledgement

Foremost, the researchers would like to express the sincere gratitude to all those people who give their time to help in making this thesis study. Thank you to the administrator of Redeeming Grace Learning Center, Ms. Valerie Hufano Insigne for allowing the researchers to conduct an interview in their school. Besides to that, the researchers would also like to say thank you to Mr. Jason Edward Hilario for the continuous support in helping the researcher to develop their proposed system. The researchers would also like to thank their beloved professors especially Mr. Ricky Tepora for teaching the researchers how to use visual basic programming language connecting to the database, for his advice and encouragement throughout the course of this thesis. And to Mr. Vonn Romel Garido for correcting the grammar and correcting the construction of sentence. And also Mr.Paul Sarreal for teaching the researchers the format and criticizing the documents. The researchers take this opportunity to acknowledge the people behind the tutorials in YouTube and lastly a big thanks to the family, friends, classmates, and teachers, thank you.

Abstract

This project was founded and created to replace the existing manual voting system of Redeeming Grace Learning Center (RGLC) that had produced inconvenience not only to the voters but also to the election facilitators. The researcher’s goal was to develop a secure, fast, accurate, user-friendly system for a small scale election. The system is designed solely and is limited for the student Council election of RGLC and could append instantly voters and candidates.

The researcher used the methodology called System Development Life Cycle (SDLC) because it fits the way they conduct their research. It involves six stages which are (1) investigation, (2) analysis, (3) design, (4) development, (5) implementation and (6) maintenance.

Computerized voting systems are widely used in elections. This paper describes using a computerized voting system as the basis for a project in an Information Technology course. Through the formulation of this system the students are indeed confident that the whole electoral process will not only be fast and quick but most of all accurate and precise.
