7 days ago

Elections are usually managed by the authorities in a black-boxed, centralised and top-down process, but blockchain elections would be run by the people in a transparent, decentralised and bottom-up process. While blockchain technology could be the breakthrough in security that is needed to enable e-voting, its success also depends upon the values and politics that it represents.
