How to build voting Ajax system with Codeigniter part 1.

In the last few days I have many requests from my blog followers to create free PHP tutorial on this subject: (how to create poll or vote system?)

So I decided to make this tutorial, not just that, but also offer this PHP script for free, so let's talk about it.

Updated : the next part of creating voting system published

Vote script features


1- System identifies voter IP address, so the voter can vote one time for every vote.

2-System is dynamically giving you the freedom to specific your poll choices, you can make it three, four, and five...or ten choices it is upon your needs.

3-System use jQuery in the backend to increase or decrease poll fields, also use jQuery Ajax requests in the frontend to post votes and see results.

4- System builds with progress html5 tag and bootstrap so easily integrated with your site.

5- Code built with Code igniter 3 latest version and MySQL, well-structured, readable and easy to follow.

6- System does not accept editing if have any votes

5- It is a free open source you can use it as you want.




1- First download poll script from our repo

2- Extract zip file into the root like www or htdocs

3- Create new database named as ‘demo’ and it imports our tables for into it

4- Change Config.php and Database.php info to meet the created database name.

5- Visit this link, and you are welcome


Project structure:


In this app we have :

1- Voting controllers

In this controller, we have Admin_voting.php to manage backend actions, and Voting.php  to manage frontend actions

2- Voting models

In this models, we have voting_model.php to manage backend database actions, and voting_counter.php  to manage frontend  database actions

5- Global folder

Bootstrap folder // which has all bootstrap basic design files

Site folder / which have all frontend design files

Admin folder // which has all frontend design files

6- Views folder

Which contains views file for our layout templates with header and footer and content and also Vote folder for all related to vote system
