Design of Distributed Voting Systems [article]

Christian Meter
2017 arXiv   pre-print
In this thesis, we analyze some of the largest real-world systems, describe their building blocks and their general design to focus on possible problems in these electronic voting systems.  ...  Afterwards, we compare our concept with real-world systems to evaluate the fulfillments of the requirements. Conclusively, we discuss the occurring problems when designing a secure system.  ...  the real-world e-voting systems from chapter 4.  ...

Effectiveness of Electronic Voting Machine in The Electoral System of India: New Opportunities and Challenges

2019 International journal of recent technology and engineering  
However, the whole world efficiently dismisses the electronic voting machine (EVM) and in fact, just a couple of nations are presently using the electronic voting machines (EVM).  ...  The Elections in India are performed almost completely using electronic voting machines (EVM) build up over the past 2 decades by a pair of government-owned companies.  ...  Security Requirements in EVMs The security necessities that electronic voting system must satisfy are - Eligibility: it means only qualified voters can cast their votes in the election era.  Verification  ...

TRIP: Trustless Coercion-Resistant In-Person Voter Registration [article]

Louis-Henri Merino, Simone Colombo, Jeff Allen, Vero Estrada-Galiñanes, Bryan Ford
2022 arXiv   pre-print
Most existing remote electronic voting systems are vulnerable to voter coercion and vote buying.  ...  TRIP ensures that even voters who are under extreme coercion, and cannot leave the booth with a real credential, can delegate their vote to a political party, with the caveat that they must then trust  ...  The authors would like to thank the E-Voting Group at Bern University of Applied Sciences, namely Rolf Haenni and Eric Dubuis, for their valuable feedback.  ...

Going from bad to worse: from Internet voting to blockchain voting

Sunoo Park, Michael Specter, Neha Narula, Ronald L Rivest
2021 Journal of Cybersecurity  
This article analyzes and systematizes prior research on the security risks of online and electronic voting, and shows that not only do these risks persist in blockchain-based voting systems, but blockchains  ...  While current election systems are far from perfect, Internet- and blockchain-based voting would greatly increase the risk of undetectable, nation-scale election failures.  ...  REP token holders stake their tokens to vote on real-world outcomes and report them into the smart contract.  ...

Cloud Database Security in E-Voting System using Blockchain Technology

2020 International journal of recent technology and engineering  
Our proposed E-Voting System is mainly to protect the cloud database for real time data and to reduce the time consumption in voting and vote counting processes.  ...  Building an electronic voting system that tries to completely fulfill the needs of the people has always been a challenge to achieve.  ...  The Proxy type of voting or double type of voting is not at all possible, because it is more secured and is really easy to store the data.  ...
