Abstract

One of the biggest problems plaguing society today is that of fraudulent elections. The world’s largest democracies still suffer from flawed electoral systems. In current voting systems, we see problems with vote rigging, hacking of the EVM (Electronic voting machine), election manipulation, and polling booth capturing. Looking closely at the current Cambridge Analytica scandal brings the validity of current voting systems into question. In this paper, we propose a novel voting model which can resolve these issues. Using a recently introduced blockchain protocol called PHANTOM, we try to alleviate known problems in voting systems. Furthermore, the advantage of using our model is, it is compatible with all voting schemes. So, one can implement our model using any voting scheme depending on the requirement of different type of elections.
