The cloud computing has become more popular these days. Cloud computing is a computing paradigm in which tasks are assigned to a combination of connections, software and services that can be accessed over internet. This paper proposes the usage of cloud computing in E-polling. The main aim of this project is to avoid fake votes in polling by having a cloud database about the voters. Thumb impression of candidates is used for authentication. A candidate can vote at any place irrespective of his polling booth, and can vote through mobile phones. We have used the min- min average algorithm to increase the communication workflow in cloud. The cloud computing relies on the internet. When the internet connection fails it does not work with mobile phone. Our system is implemented using cloud computing and biometrics. Cloud computing is a paradigm in which virtualized resource are provided as a service over the internet to the cloud user. Users need not have knowledge of, expertise in or over technologies infrastructure in the “cloud” that supports them. Biometric identification refers to identifying an individual based on his/her distinguishing physiological and or behavioral characteristics. Our system uses thumb print as distinguishable factor. Cloud computing refers to the next evolution of the Internet. Instead of buying software, installing it on your computer, upgrading it periodically and storing all your data on your hard drive, with cloud computing you use software applications online, as a service. All you need is your computing device and an Internet connection. The cloud computing thus can be used in polling system. We have introduced the smart client technology to overcome this difficulty in mobile phones
