Voting blockchain

Our purpose

Démos Kratos

  • Voting is one of the cornerstones of democracy, whether it’s at local, national or international level. It is the very basis for the legitimacy of governments
  • high voter turnout requires voter confidence in how the voting process is carried out.

    Making voting accessible to all through digital technologies

  • in emergency situations including wars, health crises, and natural disasters,
  • to adapt to the younger generation’s digital usage
  • to offer new forms of expression to protesting abstainers

Online voting requires advanced technology and organisation facing two major challenges facing two major challenges

  • a technological challenge: overcoming barriers to entry and the uncertainty of its scalability in an independent environment,
  • an organisational challenge: implementing a governance system that guarantees the system’s independence and stability.

4 levels to construct

4 levels to construct

At Votelab, we believe that online voting can be broken down into 4 levels:

Level 0

Governance legalisation of online voting and definition of the set of rules for it – who (organisers and voters), how, when and on what issues?

Level 1

Digital identity
identification and authentication of voters for a given election

Level 2

A secure voting platform to gain the voters’ trust

Level 3

A transparent and inviolable ballot box

Why enter the ballot box in the blockchain?

Why enter the ballot box in the blockchain?

To achieve level 3, Votelab relies on the many advantages unique to the blockchain:

  • distributed: a sovereign voting infrastructure, shared by independent operators to prevent third-party takeover
  • available: a service level that meets the highest standards on the day of the election, guaranteed by the electoral organisers,
  • transparent: real-time visibility about the ballot box activity while guaranteeing that voting stays secret. No links between the identity of the voter and their vote.

Blockchain technology has some decisive advantages when it comes to this function. It is immutable, traceable, transparent and decentralised.

Why use a new blockchain technology?

Existing blockchains

The Votelab blockchain

  1. all transactions are accumulated to create a global state shared by the network validators (consensus)
  1. participants can thus transact with each other
  1. these blockchains store all of the data, including the senders, recipients and transactions
  1. Economical: each ballot is independent and there is no continuous chain but a “sub-chain” per ballot
  1. Secure: there are no transactions between participants, but the integrity of all the votes in the ballot box is guaranteed
  1. Verifiable: the link between ballots, voters and voted content is verifiable while ensuring that there is end-to-end secrecy

The Votelab blockchain

  1. Économe : chaque scrutin est indépendant , pas de chaîne continue mais une ”sous-chaîne” par scrutin.
  2. Secure: there are no transactions between participants, but the integrity of all the votes in the ballot box is guaranteed
  3. these blockchains store all of the data, including the senders, recipients and transactions

How does it

A distributed blockchain solution

  • Up to 100 Nodes will help secure the global network,
  • Node operators are credible actors (states, companies, universities, NGOs, international organisations, citizen groups, etc.) – they have no conflicts of interest or interests to agree upon
  • Decentralised voting apps (dapps) allow voters to vote in elections by accessing the network via Nodes.
