Abstract

Traditional elections satisfy neither citizens nor political authorities in recent years. They are not fully secure since it is easy to attack votes. It threatens also privacy and transparency of voters. Additionally, it takes too much time to count the votes. This paper proposes a solution using Blockchain to eliminate all disadvantages of conventional elections. Security and data integrity of votes is absolutely provided theoretically. Voter privacy is another requirement that is ensured in the system. Lastly, waiting time for results decreased significantly in proposed Blockchain voting system.
