Abstract: The concept of cloud is sprinkled on an excess of emerging products. Online voting is preferred by the elector by facing several major issues in traditional voting system including geographically dispersed, time constraint job, disabled and others. Online voting system is publically accessible so there are some issues one of the major issues is security. Our objective is to design and develop a frame work for a secure online voting system in cloud environment by using token based authentication, secure hash algorithm, RSA based blind Signature and encryption algorithms. This proposed system consists of three mangers such as User Administration Manager (UAM), Vote Administration Manager (VAM) and Vote Tallying Manager (VTM). In registration phase the elector interacts with UAM to acquire a certificate. VAM is responsible to authenticate the elector. VTM is in charge for verifying the identity of the elector, validity of his/her certificate and tally the votes. All the managers are implemented as agents because it is a capable of working autonomously and continuously in cloud environment. The assessment of the system is verified using properties called authenticity, verifiability, uniqueness, accuracy and non-coercibility.
