Crypto-democracy: A Decentralized Voting Scheme using Blockchain Technology

Gautam Srivastava, Ashutosh Dhar Dwivedi, Rajani Singh

Abstract

A fraudulent election is one of the biggest problems of the contemporaneity in most countries. Even the world’s largest democracies like India, United States, and Japan still suffer from a flawed electoral system. Vote rigging, hacking of the EVM (Electronic voting machine), election manipulation, and polling booth capturing are the major issues in the current voting system. This fallacious election process calls voting systems into question. With the current Cambridge Analytica scandal a hot topic around the world, it brings the validity of current voting systems into question. In this paper, we investigate the problems in the election voting systems and propose a novel voting model which can resolve these issues. We use a recently introduced blockchain based protocol called PHANTOM, which uses a directed acyclic graph of blocks, also known as blockDAG, to generalize the initial blockchain technology.
