Election Security

Centralized Blockchain Voting Platform

Blockchain voting is taking the current process of voting in an election and bringing that process entirely online to make it easier, secure, and cost effective for everyone involved.

The voter would download and install the app on their phones and from there, have their identity and picture verified by an Identity Verifier, which would be approved by the organization hosting the election ahead of time. Once their identity is verified, the voter would be able to request their ballot, at which point they are issued one by the Registrar. The voter would then complete their ballot and securely submit their vote(s) to the blockchain ballot box.

To obtain proof of casting their ballot, the voter would have the option to print out a receipt. If approved by the organization hosting the election, the voter may vote early.

Using their vote account, the voter can go navigate the ballot box and verify for themselves that their vote was accounted for as intended. Voters can also audit each ballot in the ballot box to confirm the election results are accurate all while retaining privacy and security.
