Abstract- The heart of the democracy is solely depending on the voting. The voting is the right for every citizen in the nation. The fingerprint shows the most promising future in real-world applications. Because of their uniqueness and consistency over time, fingerprints have been used for identification and authentication purpose. However, there are some challenges in using fingerprint in real-world application. We are interested in designing and analyzing the Mobile voting system using fingerprint texture, which is the core in current modern approach for fingerprint analysis. As the mobile phone become a part of the human, it is very convenient to use. We are using the mobile phone for the purpose of voting. It helps the user to poll their vote in spite of any location and also in short period of time. Keywords— Biometric, Fingerprint, Minutiae, Mobile phone.

I.INTRODUCTION Elections allow the populace to choose their representatives and express their preferences for how they will be governed. Naturally, the integrity of the election process is fundamental to the integrity of democracy itself. 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. Most of the countries in the world e-Voting system have been used. Due to rapid growth of technology security problems are getting increased. So instead of developing e-voting systems, also there is a lot research work is being done to make these systems more secure. In some e-Voting systems, there is a password is issued to individuals to make the system more. Nowadays a lot of research work is going on developing more secure methods and one of

them secure methods is usage of biometrics. Biometric based systems are those in which human physical characteristics like face shape, finger prints, etc. are being used for identification and authentication. Biometrics is the automated recognition of individuals based on their behavioral and biological characteristics. Biometric recognition means by measuring an individual's suitable behavioral and biological characteristics in a recognition inquiry and comparing these data with the biometric reference data which had been stored during a learning procedure, the identity of a specific user is determined. A fingerprint is an impression of the friction ridges, from the surface of a fingertip. Fingerprints have been used for personal identification for many decades, more recently becoming recognition is nowadays one of the most important and popular biometric technologies mainly because of the inherent ease in acquisition the numerous sources (ten fingers) available for collection, and the established use and collections by law enforcement agencies. Automatic fingerprint identification is one of the most reliable biometric technologies. This is because of the well known fingerprint persistence, distinctiveness, ease of acquisition and high matching accuracy rates. Fingerprints are unique to each individual and they do not change over time. Even identical twins do not carry identical fingerprints. Scientific research in areas such as biology, embryology, anatomy and histology has supported these findings. Fingerprint recognition method and ID system in biometric methods are frequently preferred because applications of them are easy and lowcost. Every human in the world has a unique Fingerprint so it is impossible to steal or lose so there is no need to remember fingerprints like if individual passwords or personal identification numbers (PINs) in card technology to keep systems secure. Besides, every...
