Almost entirely correct mixing with applications to voting

Dan Boneh, Philippe Golle
2002 Proceedings of the 9th ACM conference on Computer and communications security - CCS '02  
Our new mix net is of particular value for electronic voting, where a guarantee of almost entirely correct mixing may well be sufficient to announce instantly the result of a large election.  ...  In order to design an exceptionally efficient mix network, both asymptotically and in real terms, we develop the notion of almost entirely correct mixing, and propose a new mix network that is almost entirely  ...  is almost entirely correct.  ...

Optical character recognition with neural networks and post-correction with finite state methods

Senka Drobac, Krister Lindén
2020 International Journal on Document Analysis and Recognition  
The greatest accomplishment of the study is the successful training of one mixed language model for the entire corpus and finding a voting setup that further improves the results.  ...  Furthermore, we revisit the effect of confidence voting on the OCR results with different model combinations. Finally, we perform post-correction on the new OCR results and perform error analysis.  ...  To view a copy of this licence, visit http://creativecomm ons.org/licenses/by/4.0/.  ...

The extent of the population paradox in the Hungarian electoral system

Attila Tasnádi
2007 Public Choice  
In particular, the governing coalition may lose as many as 8 seats either by getting more votes or by the opposition obtaining fewer votes on each territorial list.  ...  The Hungarian mixed-member electoral system, adopted in 1989, is one of the world's most complicated electoral systems, and, as this paper demonstrates, it suffers from the "population paradox."  ...  Acknowledgements The author would like to thank Trenton G. Smith, the Editor in Chief, and two anonymous referees for their helpful comments and suggestions.  ...

Shuffle-Sum: Coercion-Resistant Verifiable Tallying for STV Voting

J. Benaloh, T. Moran, L. Naish, K. Ramchen, V. Teague
2009 IEEE Transactions on Information Forensics and Security  
Recently developed cryptographic voting protocols allow anyone to audit an election (universal verifiability), but existing systems are either not applicable to ranked voting at all, or reveal enough information  ...  There are many advantages to voting schemes in which voters rank all candidates in order, rather than just choosing their favourite.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS Many thanks to Thea Peacock, Ron Rivest, Peter Ryan, Roland Wen, Andrew Conway and the anonymous reviewers for interesting discussions and helpful suggestions about this paper.  ...

Using Prêt à Voter in Victoria State Elections

Craig Burton, Chris Culnane, James Heather, Thea Peacock, Peter Y. A. Ryan, Steve A. Schneider, Vanessa Teague, Roland Wen, Zhe Xia, Sriramkrishnan Srinivasan
2012 USENIX Security Symposium  
We hope this will be an interesting case study on the application of end-to-end verifiable voting protocols to real elections.  ...  The Prêt à Voter cryptographic voting system was designed to be flexible and to offer voters a familiar and easy voting experience.  ...  Thanks are also due to Douglas Wikström for his support and advice with respect to the Verificatum system.  ...

A Secure Quantum protocol for Anonymous One-vote Veto Voting

Songyang Wu, Wenqi Sun, Qingle Wang, Ronghua Che, Meng Hu, Zhiguo Ding, Xuexue
2021 IEEE Access  
The one-vote veto, which requires the voting result to be only "yes" or "no", is a particularly noteworthy type of voting with widespread application.  ...  This work is the first attempt to illustrate how qubits can be useful for building a secure anonymous one-vote veto strategy. INDEX TERMS Quantum anonymous voting, one-vote veto, privacy, security.  ...  Proof: Directly from the analysis of the correctness, our protocol almost achieves correctness if it completes the implementation as it is planned.  ...

Lauretta O. Osho, Muhammad B. Abdullahi, Oluwafemi Osho
2016 International Journal of Information Engineering and Electronic Business  
This form of voting, however, is not immune to challenges generally associated with voting.  ...  One of its applications is the use of electronic voting, also known as e-voting, as opposed to the traditional manual method of voting.  ...  Voting Phase This is the main election phase of the entire exercise. It begins with authentication of voters. Only those who are authenticated are allowed to cast ballots.  ...

It contains vote transfer and allows for the application of three different correction formulas.  ...  Vote transfer rules are also investigated by focusing on the possibility of manipulation. The model is applied to the 2014 Hungarian parliamentary election.  ...  It is worth to compare it to the variant with almost the same number of mandates (228) under DVT.  ...
