Program to read the ballots and count the votes cast for each candidate using an array variable count

Posted By: Easy Tutor     Category: Java     Views: 5299

An election is contested by 5 candidates. The candidates are numbered 1 to 5 and the voting is
done by marking the candidate number on the ballot paper. Write a program to read the ballots
and count the votes cast for each candidate using an array variable count. In case, a number read is outside
the range 1 to 5, the ballot should be considered as a 'spoil ballot' and the program should also count
the number of split ballots.

Code for Program to read the ballots and count the votes cast for each candidate using an array variable count in Java

import java.io.*;

class  Election
{
    publicstaticvoid main(String args[]) 
    {
         int Candidate[]=newint[6];
        int SpoiltBallot=0;
        int voters;
        int check=0,winner=1,badlooser=1;
        String str;

        try{
             BufferedReader obj=new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(System.in));
             System.out.println("\n=====ELECTION BOARD=====\n");
             System.out.print("\nEnter number of voters appeared for voting : ");
             System.out.flush();
             str=obj.readLine();
             voters=Integer.parseInt(str);

    loop: for(int i=1;i<=voters;i++)
             {
                    System.out.print("\nVote given by voter("+i+") to Candidate Id : ");
                    System.out.flush();
                    str=obj.readLine();
                    check=Integer.parseInt(str);

                    if (check<1 && check>5)
                    {
                            SpoiltBallot=SpoiltBallot+1;
                            continue loop;
                    }
                    else
                    {
                            Candidate[check]=Candidate[check]+1;
                    }
            }

            System.out.println("\nVOTING RESULT ARE AS UNDER");
            for(int i=1;i<=6;i++)
            {
                 System.out.println("CANDIDATE ID : "+i+" has recieved  "+Candidate[i]+" Votes");
            }

            for(int i=1;i<=5;i++)
            {
                 for(int j=1;j<=5;j++)
                 {
                         if(i==1)
                          {
                             winner=i;
                             badlooser=i;
                          }

                          if(Candidate[i]<Candidate[j])
                          {
                                winner=j;
                          }

                          if(Candidate[i]>Candidate[j])
                          {
                                badlooser=j;
                          }
                }
            }
        //    System.out.println("\nWinner is Candidate "+winner+" recieved "+Candidate[winner]+" votes.");//    System.out.println("Candidate "+badlooser+" recieved the lowest votes that is "+Candidate[badlooser]);//    System.out.println("Spoilt Ballot are : "+SpoiltBallot);
        }
        catch(Exception e)
        {}
    }
}
