    This paper discusses the implementation of an online
    voting system based on image steganography and visual
    cryptography. The system was implemented in
    Java EE on a web-based interface, with MySQL database
    server and Glassfish application server as the
    backend. After considering the requirements of an online
    voting system, current technologies on electronic
    voting schemes in published literature were examined.
    Next, the cryptographic and steganography techniques
    best suited for the requirements of the voting system
    were chosen, and the software was implemented. We
    have incorporated in our system techniques like the
    password hashed based scheme, visual cryptography,
    F5 image steganography and threshold decryption
    cryptosystem. The analysis, design and implementation
    phase of the software development of the voting
    system is discussed in detail. We have also used a
    questionnaire survey and did the user acceptance testing
    of the system.
