Abstract: The objective of this project is to develop a protection circuit for the electronic voting machine. The main aim of the system is to develop a timer controlled self-destructing circuit for reducing the chances of tampering whether it be data tampering or circuit tampering within the EVM [1]. The Electronic voting machine is used for counting the total number of votes polled in the particular polling booth during the elections and in those scenarios the tampering of the EVM is quite often to be found. In our project we will be using the circuit destroyer module which is controlled by a timer circuit that will trigger on when the data is once taken as input for the polling and the box is enclosed. As the box is once closed the timer circuit is triggered and whenever the box is tried to open or tampered before the stipulated time period the relay switches on the power signal to the self-destructive circuit which in turn destructs the circuit of the electronic voting machine so the data collected is transferred to a hard drive for data extraction and the machine can never be used again by tampering. Thereby ensuring the voters vote security and lessening the violation of the rights of the particular citizen.
