Voting is one of the fundamental rights of every citizen of a democratic country. By utilizing the right of the voting, people elect their most suitable leader who will lead them. In this modern era where technology is being used in every aspect of life, the election is a place to apply the best technology. Some of them misused it so that we can make the voting machine with Face recognition. In this proposed system we have used Face recognition that can identify each voter, count votes and can prevent fake votes. The proposed system is a more digital, technology-based and secured system. Once the corresponding fingerprint and Iris is matched with the information provided, the voter will be allowed to proceed for choosing their preferred candidate from the panel of buttons. The final vote is then displayed onto an LCD for the satisfaction of voters. The proposed project displays transparency and also carries the feature of being autonomous during the course of operation.

Keywords: Electronic Voting Machine; Face recognition; Raspberry Pi; LCD display; RFID Reader.
