Elections and voting system emblematizes the freedom, democracy, hopes, a changeover and responsibilities of a citizen all as a whole! We are in demand to trust politicians, electoral systems, and the entire backend team who is deciding the future of the country for the next generation blindly. But, the real fact is the whole system happens behind, and there is no transparent system for the voting process even in developed countries.
Before entering into blockchain voting platform development for your country, you must know the splendid features it can revamp in the existing electoral system.
Here’s what blockchain technology is all about!
Blockchain is the distributed ledger technology that consists of data blocks that are cryptographically sealed. The chain of data blocks is stored in chronological order after the verification process by the nodes of the blockchain network. All the participants of the blockchain network work with a consensus mechanism that drives the community with appropriate decisions.
Paradigm features of blockchain tech that can be beneficial to the electoral system!
● Immutable votes stamped by citizens,
● Decentralized network,
● Transparent network,
● Trustless system,
● Cryptographically secure data,
● Smart contracts,
● Peer-to-peer voting lines,
● No single point of failure,
● Accuracy of votes,
● Only verified ballots are considered.
Sure, this bundle of features would attract the citizens who are striving for a better world of democracy. Let me snipe you the top 3 benefits of the blockchain-based voting system!
The blockchain-enabled electoral process helps the participants to cast their verified votes from any part of the world. Instead of standing in long queues, oversea travels, fraudulent votes, people can easily submit their ballot votes at fingertips using blockchain. If there are 100% verified votes stamped for the democratic electoral process with real-time results, that’s the day when blockchain voting solutions are implemented!
Once the registered participants of the country cast the votes, it is not directly taken into account. The nodes of the blockchain network, for instance, authoritative electoral officials verify the votes and then add them as the data block. This can pave the way for your original votes! One citizen, one vote! It’s in the near future of the blockchain era.
As the blockchain tech itself is built with immutability, votes stamped also becomes irreversible. The whole transaction happens to be in P2P and hence no middle men counting or verifying the votes. With the complete immutability, results and votes of the electoral system are irreversible.
No other recounting because of threats by opponent parties!
Trust has now become trustless!
You need not trust any of the backends team processing your votes in the electoral system that decides your country’s leadership anymore. With blockchain, the electoral system becomes transparent, immutable, secure, and trustless.
