Elections require the authentication of the voters' identity, the safe keeping of records (useful for keeping track of votes) and an absolutely transparent counting and counting activity to determine the winner.

 

Blockchain can serve as a useful tool for the selection, monitoring and counting of votes mirrored, clearing the field of any probable electoral fraud, tricks or loss of data and votes.

 

By integrating the selection of votes expressed as transactions within the blockchain, voters can be reassured about the correctness and transparency of the final count of the voting operations, because they are able to directly count the votes themselves and, thanks to the traceability guaranteed by the distributed databases of the blockchains, can also be reassured about the fact that the votes have not been modified and that no legitimately expressed vote has been added or, on the contrary, canceled.

 

Follow My Vote has already been used in testing during the last US presidential election as an end-to-end verifiable online voting system.
