Abstract

Traditional electronic voting systems are designed with national elections in mind. However, there are other types of institutions, such as Universities, that are required by law to conduct mid- to large-scale elections. The nature of these institutions and the different regulations that govern their election process made impractical the use of traditional voting systems for their elections. This work presents the SAVE system, an electronic voting system designed to be used in University elections preserving all the requirements that a secure voting system have while being affordable and flexible enough to adapt to the different regulations. The design and implementation of this system are discussed in detail and the results of its 10 years of continuous are presented as a case study.
