3.5. Operational Feasibility:

Our project will be based on real world implementation. We will use a sample of specific number for
the testing process and conduct an election process among the students randomly keeping specific
number of candidates and Parties. The result will then be displayed on the website.

The system will require a working internet connection for continuous transmission of data to the web
server, without an internet connection the system might not work properly. The system will be tested on
a dummy data initially to check if it is working properly.
