 Building a secure electronic voting system that offers the

fairness and privacy of current voting schemes, while
providing the transparency and flexibility offered by electronic
systems has been a challenge for a long time.
 In this work-in-progress paper, we evaluate an application of
blockchain as a service to implement distributed electronic
voting systems.
 The paper proposes a novel electronic voting system based on
block chain that addresses some of the limitations in existing
systems and evaluates some of the popular block chain
frameworks for the purpose of constructing a block chain-
based e-voting system.
 Electronic voting systems have been the subject of active
research for decades, with the goal to minimize the cost of
running an election, while ensuring the election integrity
by fulfilling the security, privacy and compliance
 Replacing the traditional pen and paper scheme with a
new election system has the potential to limit fraud while
making the voting process traceable and verifiable.
 Block chain was first introduced by Satoshi Nakamoto (a
pseudonym) , who proposed a peerto-peer payment system
that allows cash transactions through the Internet without
relying on trust or the need for a financial institution .
 Blockchain is secure by design, and an example of a
system with a high byzantine failure tolerance .
 The voting system issues voting-right assets and voting
token assets to shareholders.
 A user can spend voting tokens to vote on meeting agenda
items if that user owns the related voting-right asset.
 Governments and other stakeholders will need to address
several major challenges before block chains see
widespread use for e-voting.
 Although block chains are good at providing security and
accuracy, public confidence and trust are necessary
ingredients for BEV’s success.
 Block chains’ complexity might hinder mainstream public
acceptability of BEV.
 Authentication
 Anonymity
 Accuracy
 Verifiability
 To address voter tampering,blockchains generate
cryptographically secure voting records.
 Votes are recorded accurately, permanently, securely,
and transparently.5 So, no one can modify or manipulate
 In this paper, we introduced a blockchain-based electronic
voting system that utilizes smart contracts to enable secure
and cost-efficient election while guaranteeing voters
 We have shown that the blockchain technology offers a
new possibility to overcome the limitations and adoption
barriers of electronic voting systems which ensures the
election security and integrity and lays the ground for
