Secure Voting Systems

Blockchain technology promises to empower individuals through secure, transparent and non-censorable systems. An application of this technology is governance and on-chain voting, which provide an opportunity for free and open democracy.

When each vote can be verified and is tamper-proof, users know that their vote is submitted and counts towards the outcome. This is vital for participation, and is true for small communities, petitions, and local governance (and DAOs!), as well much larger communities (such as national elections).

To be effective, voting much be easy with few constraints, allow for anonymity, be scalable for users, very inexpensive (so no-one is excluded), and ideally able to run from a smartphone. Votes must be trackable in real-time and not censorable by any entity. With fast and inexpensive processing, the EtherLite is well suited to accommodate fair and transparent voting processes for many different situations. The need for this technology is apparent now more than ever, and we are excited to see new innovations on EtherLite related to digital and blockchain voting.
