This study investigated the experiences encountered in terms of concerns, advantages, weaknesses, and issues that had arisen in the implementation of a LAN-based election system at the University of the East. The advantages of using the software were derived from these concerns. Though the software was tested before the implementation, it was found out that the software had minor lapses in terms of platform compatibility, deployment, user interface design, logical voter's status, backup, security, and presentation of results. As a consequence, issues were raised. These weaknesses served as basis for the development of a web-based election system. Nonetheless, accuracy and transparency of the whole voting process overweighed these issues and the winners were proclaimed. Thus, the implementation of the software was successful. Recommendations and future directions were also offered.
