Electronic voting system using blockchain

An electronic voting system using blockchain is a type of electronic voting system that uses blockchain technology to record and verify votes.


(1) SECURITY: Blockchain is a distributed ledger technology, which means that it is not controlled by any single entity.
This makes it very difficult to tamper with or hack a blockchain-based e-voting system.

(2) TRANSPARENCY: All transactions on the blockchain are publicly visible, which makes it easy to verify the integrity of an election.

(3) ACCESSIBILITY: The systems can be accessed from anywhere with an internet connection, which makes them more accessible to voters than traditional paper-based voting systems.


(1) PRIVACY: Voters may be concerned about their privacy if their votes are stored on a public blockchain.
This could be addressed by using a private blockchain or by using a technique called “zero-knowledge proofs” to hide the identity of voters.

(2) USABILITY: The blockchain-based e-voting systems need to be easy to use for voters of all levels of technical expertise.
This can also be achieved by using a user-friendly interface and by providing clear instructions.

(3) REGULATION: The Governments may need to develop regulations governing the use of blockchain for e-voting in order to ensure that elections are conducted fairly and securely.

Despite all these challenges, blockchain has the potential to make e-voting more secure, transparent, and accessible.
As the technology continues to develop, it is likely that blockchain will play an increasingly important role in e-voting systems around the world.


(1) VOTEM: Is a blockchain-based e-voting system that is designed to be used in elections for government, businesses, and organizations.
It also uses a private blockchain to store voter data and votes, which helps to protect voter privacy.

(2) DEMOCRACY EARTH: Is a blockchain-based e-voting system that is designed to be used in elections for government and organizations.
It also uses a public blockchain to store voter data and votes, which helps to ensure transparency.

VOTING WORK’S: Is a blockchain-based e-voting system that is designed to be used in elections for government and organizations.
It also uses a hybrid blockchain to store voter data and votes, which helps to balance security and privacy.


Blockchain technology has the potential to revolutionize electronic voting by making it more secure, transparent, and accessible, and can provide voter anonymity, auditability, and tamper-resistance.
The technology can also help to reduce the cost and complexity of electronic voting systems.


GM buddy, good topic that has big relevance to blockchain, Im just thinking if our political system would embrace any of this electronic voting system on blockchain?

Our government knows the right thing to do but selfishness will never let them,and with system they can’t be able to do their dirty game.


This is TRUE, in nutshell they are not ready to stain their dirty mind with Transparency and blockchain


I’ve been saying this in like forever, to foster good leadership and put an end to continuous election rigging practices prevalent in Africa, Blockchain based voting should be adopted.
I’m quite positive @Nana66419 and @Prince-Onscolo would agree, it’s a step in the right direction seeing that there are several blockchain-based e-voting systems currently being developed.
I think to further advance these systems, developers could explore interoperability between different e-voting platforms and integration with existing electoral processes, research into potential vulnerabilities and solutions to ensure the integrity of the blockchain-based voting systems would also be valuable.
Also, investigating ways to increase accessibility for voters with disabilities or limited technological access could be important.
Lastly, the potential of blockchain technology to enhance the security, transparency, and efficiency of electronic voting systems is promising. However, there are practical challenges and considerations that need to be addressed to ensure the successful adoption of these systems in real-world scenarios.


I have seen this same suggestion here or so? Someone suggested we vote here using blockchain. very very good point but the problem ecpecially in africa will be the lack of knowledge. Technology is a barrier in some areas, I think that’s why some countries do not use electronic voting. So I know with time this will be the order of the day. Needs a lot of education.


We still have a lot which can not read.
we still have people who can’t use smart phones, some use it for calls only. In some area of the World, this will be easy. i heard in US you can vote electronically, haven’t confirmed yet.

it is easier said than done, you have to know where you are… aside the government, most of our people are not ready for change. have you embarked on blockchain education before? If yes how was the experience? lol

The government alone not ready .
The masses most of em are in educated in the crypto space not to talk of using this blockchain voting system.

Even with our traditional voting system… Checking from start… Most are elderly.

We still have lots to do

Lols, aside from the government, we as citizen still need to do more into learning and ONBOARDING new users so that the population of those with technical know-how will increase

Directly and indirectly, we are the government,
We are them.

To bridge the gap of knowledge through orientation, dissemination of information and education I think local media and traditional outreach should be employed cause the ratio of informed youths as opposed to uninformed ones is like 1000 : 1, and the government are deliberately shadow banning channels of outreach by using the NBC to impose baseless sanctions on TV stations that goes beyond and above, etc.
And, it takes each one to reach one, so let each one teach one.
Notwithstanding, electronic and Blockchain based voting would be the norm in the nearest future.
I’m itching to hear @Nana66419 take on this.

one thing I want to know about blockchain and the government is that, are we informing them about the use of blockchain technology in other sectors or only the use of cryptocurrencies?

In Nigeria, Blockchain awareness and education isn’t only centred on cryptocurrencies but diverse functionalities in every walk of life, it’s evident in how fintech that arises from the woes of banks always have a crypto transfer feature incorporated (in Nigeria) like Patricia, Bitmama, etc.
The previous government tried to stifle crypto trades by discontinuing the NGN/USD pair on binance claiming it was the cause of the depreciation of the Naira against the Dollar but we saw lower lows after then and Nigerians resorted to P2P.
Nigeria still holds the record for the largest bitcoin trade volume globally or so I think.
So for us here, Blockchain goes beyond cryptocurrencies.


alright thanks for the explanation.

What’s the government current decision on cryptos in Nigeria?

The NGN/USD pair ban has been lifted and crypto trades ceased being labelled illegal, transfers between bank accounts with crypto tags aren’t freezed as opposed to the previous dispensation.
Finally, the last unofficial move by the government to cushion the rate at which the Naira depreciates against the Dollar is making sure the anti-crypto previous governor of the central bank cools off in prison.
Win-win for Blockchain technology, decentralisation at it’s finest :joy:

oh nice to hear. Here in Ghana we do not have issues. The last notice from Bank of Ghana was to tell us to proceed with caution…And can’t price goods and services in Foreign currencies but still they government price affordable housing in dollars :joy::joy:
