Current evoting machines have proven to be very hackable. Results can’t be trusted. Governments are seeking ways to improve the performance and reliability of these solutions.
Goals and Objectives
Machines need to be made more trustworthy, and paper or other backup copy needs to be produced for later audit purposes. Goal is to improve citizen trust in voting process. Improve accessibility of voting process. Ensure accuracy of voting results. Improve availability and consistency of backup copies for audit purposes.
Blockchain for tech trustworthiness, identity-based access control solutions, multifactor ID, social media tools for social outreach
Use Case Summary
Improving evoting comes down to transparency, improving trustworthiness, and making results easy to audit. There are tools to help with this. Blockchain can be used to detect and alleviate tampering. But improvements must come with social outreach (via social media tools) to assure voters that results have been fully audited and certified.
