THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND
A Student’s Supreme Council (SSC) is a student organization present in many high schools, colleges and universities. In the latter, said organization is dedicated to social and organizational activities of the student body in and out of the school campus.
Before students become SSC Officers, election is the first thing to be ascertained. A Student’s Supreme Council election is a decision making process by which the whole collegiate population chooses their student candidate to hold or govern the Student’s Supreme Council. The election system must be sufficiently robust to withstand a variety of fraudulent behaviors and must be sufficiently transparent and comprehensible that voters and candidates can accept the results of an election. Unsurprisingly, history is littered with examples of elections having problems while ballot-based election is used. A “ballot-based voting system” is a paper-based voting systems originated as a system where votes are casted and counted manually and through board tallies based on screened vote paper ballots. When tasks were decentralized and counted manually, speculations may have a large possibility to exist and some student candidate questioning the truimph of the rival candidates. Another disadvantage that may result to would be a large time consumed on counting and tallying of votes.
It is possible to create Election System that by their very nature, are secure, reliable and trustworthy. As the researchers reviewed and analyzed the existing procedures of Northeastern College Student’s Supreme Council Elections in Villasis, Santiago City and with the information gatherd through interview with Student’ Supreme Council Commission on Elections Officers, the researchers uncovered that student’s have their participation in the said elections as student voters and as candidates or members of the Commission on Elections.In the past years, Northeastern College (NC) had used a manual procedure of elections. Now, with this Election System, about two-thirds cast in this future elections will be counted by a computer. This will make elections faster, sleeker, more efficient: No more pieces of paper. No more waiting until the second day for weary Commission on Elections Officers to finish counting paper ballot.
Conceptual Framework of the Study
The proposed Student’s Supreme Council Election System consist of the ID Number of the students respondents. It sorts out the ID Number of the students and the issuance of printed forms through the system. Paradigm of the Study
Enhanced Student’s Supreme Council Election System
a. Analyzing the data gathered
b. Identifying alllternative solution on the problems encountered c. Developing the system
a. ID number of the respondents
b. problem encountered on using the ballot-based SSC Elections c. Proposed SSC Election System
The Figure 1.0 shows the diagrammatic representation of the conceptual framework which shows the processes undertaken by the researchers in developing the Election System for Northeastern College – Student’s Supreme Council Elections. Statement of the Problem
This study focused on the proposition of A Student’s Supreme Council Election System of Northeastern College. Specifically the researhers aimed to answer the following questions: 1. What is the ID Number of the respondents?
2. What are the problem encountered in the Manual System? 3. What are the benefits derived in coming about in an Election System?
Assumptions of the Study
In the conduct of the study, the researcher structured the following assumption to give direction to the study: 1. That there is an existing SSC Election System.
2. That there are problems encountered in using the manual or ballot-based election system of Northeastern College-Student’s Supreme Council, and 3. That there are benefits derived in...
