Electronic Voting Machine #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Electronic Voting Machine built with Raspberry Pi and Qt5 Hackster io

Great project from Giovanni Bauermeister on hackster.io:

In Brazil, in times of election, some schools promote election activities to provide young students, which are not yet eligible for voting, with authentic experiences about the election and the opportunity to participate in an election process. Most of the time, schools use pen and paper or some kind of voting software installed in a Desktop Computer so kids can vote for their colleagues who presented the best proposals for their school.

As you may know, Brazil uses a real electronic voting machine in election years. The machine has a screen, buttons and shows pictures of the candidates as soon as you enter their numbers. I myself voted using the electronic voting machine since I was 18 years old.

Why not give a similar experience to young students so they can experience voting using a similar machine? That would give them more excitement and would help schools to better teach the election process, democracy, politics and the role of each candidate.

With that in mind I decided to gather some tools I have some experience with and started to build a Brazilian Voting Machine clone.
