ABSTRACT This project was devoted to the design of a Mobile Voting Application. A number of steps were followed in order to come up with a simple voting structure for an Administrator and User system with authorization and authentication features for Android Platforms. Different types of data and data collection methods were used including both primary and secondary data in order to make the project a success. In order to attain the objectives of this project, Android Studio 2.2.2 was used to develop and implement the application, PHPMyAdmin to handle the MySQL database management system, XAMPP to connect the database to the localhost server; Adobe Photoshop CC for layouts and icons, and Adobe Creative Suite Dreamweaver and Sublime text for writing codes.
