A blockchain is a public decentralized digital distributed ledger that verifies, processes and records all transactions across thousands of nodes simultaneously. In the case of votes in an election, all voting transaction results are broadcast to a network of subscribing nodes, and each node updates its own copy of the ledger with the new transactions. Once a new group of transactions is verified, a block is created and added to the blockchain. All transactions posted to the ledger are publicly visible and verifiable based on previous blocks. Essentially, blockchain is a ledger that anyone can add things to but no one can remove anything from. This creates a certain verigiable record.
The blockchain adds another level of security and transparency to the voting process.
Blockchain technology is secure and essentially hack proof. Since the blockchain relies on a distributed, global web of nodes that validate each transaction and communicate with the whole network, the ability to change any votes or tabulated results are impossible.
Therefore, the blockchain provides voters with anonymity and security while ensuring the integrity of each vote cast.
Through the use of this technology, higher trust in voting results, especially with online and mobile app voting, is now a reality.
