2. MADA Area Farmers’ Organization (PPK) Program and Activities
In 2016, there are 2 main programs implemented by the MADA PPK and are as follows:
I. Election of the Board of Directors (AJP) of the KDP of 2016 – 2019 At the Annual General Meeting Using the E-Voting
Every Farmers’ Organization (PP) is led by the ranks of the Board of Directors (AJP) selected by lot at the General Meeting. The e-vote system is a system of voting and counting of votes using computer applications as an alternative to ballot paper. The development of a simple and user-friendly system design provides a lot of facilities for voters. It is built in such a way that it takes into account age, health and user efficiency levels.
Therefore, PPK MADA took the initiative for the first time in 2016 to hold AJP election at the General Meeting of the KDP using the e-vote system. Starting with the selection of AJP by KDP H-II, Head of Limit until 26 other PPADA MADA Kedah and Perlis also use this technology in the selection of AJP PPK respectively.
Using the e-Voting system, the voting process is seen to run more smoothly and quickly than with the use of ballot papers as well as the problem of corrupt votes is also unlikely. The decision of a lottery can be removed immediately because it is a realtime real time polling system.
This system is a new alternative to the development of today’s information technology and can save time while minimizing costs in the future.
