How blockchain technology can pave way for a better and faster election process

To understand the concept better, you need to have appropriate information about the basis of how the voting process works in the current environment. So the process of voting is pretty basic and it has been the same for a long time now. The voters go to a specific location that is allocated to them and there they enter a voting booth which is created in such a way that nobody can see who you vote for. There, you put a mark on the paper, fold it nicely, and throw it in a box. To know more visit Bitcoin Circuit app.

 Yes, everything is done manually and it is considered as one of the best ways as there is no room for doing it incorrectly. However, with a world that has been changing rapidly and everything being available to you with a click of a button, we have grown to become impatient and nobody has got the time for a person to count every bit of paper.

 Now, the question that arises is if this system can go digital or not. Now, the electronic voting system based voting has been working its ways as well but is it secure? A lot of people suspect that it is not the best way as there is not much security and people face problems in the verification and authentication process.

 Now, this is the part where blockchain voting may do wonders for us. To make you understand the concept of blockchain voting, here is a guide to let you know how it works and why it is secure:

  • So in the process of blockchain voting, each voter gets provided with a key.
  • The purpose of the key is for you to use it while voting on voting day.
  • You have to send this key to a specific address which tells who you are voting for.
  • The key is nothing but a random number that is given to you.
  • What makes this key special and secure is that nobody can trace it. So nobody will ever find out that the key was yours.
  • The machines who are the recipient of the key don’t also know that it was submitted by you.
  • Once you submit your vote, it gets submitted on many computers and the best part is that without that particular key, that vote cannot be changed.
  • Now, nobody also knows about your key as only you know the number key you had.
  • The key can’t be used again as it was already used to give the vote.
  • The best feature of the key is that due to the random number that is allocated, nobody can ever know if it was yours. Your identity remains anonymous

 Now that you know about how the blockchain system works, don’t you feel like the system could work in a voting environment? The system is not that complicated and it is a better and faster way to vote.

 The only reason why blockchain has not been implemented to vote is that people have not grown to trust technology yet. A majority of people still rely on the human count, but this creates a very haphazard result as, on the other hand, they are also very impatient to get the results.

Electronic technology can not be trusted as they are also vulnerable to several viruses and malware that can cause severe damage. But the point of our discussion here is that the blockchain system may not be foolproof, but is it better than the one that is already being implemented by us?

 Well, the answer to this question is that blockchain voting is certainly a better option to go for as nothing is perfect, but blockchain voting can prove to give out much faster results. And in a highly impatient world, we believe that giving out quick results is all that needs to be done.

Blockchain voting will also ensure that the process of voting is fair and that no kind of unfair practices is being done to win the elections. The safety of the voter is also equally important and we believe that even if the blockchain system has not been created yet, it can surely be designed in no time and we can use our technology in order to implement the system with utmost accuracy.
