Amazing students develop ballot box to stop multiple voting

Some students of the Ashanti Region-based Obuasi Senior High Technical School (SHTS) have innovated a special ballot box for voting.

In a move to help address challenges during voting, including multiple voting, the school has invented a smart box for automatic counting.

The ballot box, according to the students, displays the total number of ballot papers in the box and also prevents eligible voters from voting twice.

Explaining how the modern box works, the Senior High School technical students said “the smart ballot box has two compartments; the part that takes the paper from the voter and the box itself.

The paper compartment has a paper roller made with some PVC pipes, a gear motor, and a sensor to detect the voter’s closeness to the box, and it is adjusted to take one paper at a time.

When the voter is about 40cm to the ballot box, the paper compartment is activated to allow the voter to cast his ballot. A red light is shown to alert the voter that the system is ready.

When the voter places the paper on the space provided, the system will automatically take the paper from the voter and drop it into the box and count it as one and displays the number on a screen for public viewing. Subsequent, votes will be counted and total votes displayed on the screen
