Method – This study extends the scope of the current BUUFFAI eVoting system to address such issues and to eliminate inconvenience both to the faculty voters and the facilitators. This voting scheme used an algorithmic OTP scheme based on table sequence pattern schedule that randomly generates an XY coordinate unique to voters that will be sent to voter registered email address.
