Novel Approach for Decentralized Voting System Using Blockchain
Dr. Umapathi G R | Saurav Gupta
Abstract: Electronic voting, also known as e-voting, has been utilized in various forms since the 1970s and offers significant advantages compared to traditional paper-based systems, including improved efficiency and reduced errors. Nonetheless, the widespread adoption of e-voting systems still faces obstacles, particularly in enhancing their ability to withstand potential faults. The emergence of blockchain technology, which is currently revolutionizing various industries, holds the promise of enhancing the overall resilience of e-voting systems. This paper presents a dedicated endeavor to leverage the advantages of blockchain, such as cryptographic principles and transparency, to establish an effective e-voting scheme. The proposed scheme adheres to the essential requirements for e-voting systems and ensures end-to-end verifiability. This paper offers a comprehensive overview of the proposed e-voting scheme, including its implementation utilizing the Multichain platform. Furthermore, a thorough evaluation of the scheme is presented, demonstrating its efficacy in achieving a verifiable e-voting system from start to finish.
