Abstract

With the development of society and its people democratic consciousness, voting as a crucial canal of democracy has to satisfy high expectations of modern society, new technologies and techniques must be deployed for better voting experience, and to replace traditional cost inefficient and laborious traditional paper voting. Blockchain technology is currently disrupting every industry where security and data integrity are prioritized. In this paper, we leveraged this technology to propose a design and implementation of a blockchain-based electronic voting system for large scale election. The novelty in this paper when compared to other state of the art blockchain-based voting systems is that it respects voter’s privacy with a full transparency for auditing and user-friendly terminals, which will boost the confidence of people in the voting system and therefor increase the number of participants in the election.
