Abstract

As the area of use for blockchain technology is rapidly spreading, a digitized democratic voting system might just be the next revolutionary step towards a transparent and trusted electoral system. This project investigates the possibility of a decentralized voting system and explores the possible challenges regarding privacy, correctness and integrity. Using the Ethereum blockchain and various smart contracts, a prototype was implemented as a proof of concept. The project also contains studies regarding the social- and environmental aspects of the prototype and electronic voting in general. The study concretizes what needs to be improved in order to use a voting
system built on blockchain technology. This project also concludes that there is still work to be done in order to use this technology in crucial fields such as voting. And suggests using a private blockchain in order to implement the specified voting system.

Keywords: Blockchain, Smart contracts , Decentralized systems , Digital wallets.
