Blockchain Voting Old

We don’t want voting to be any harder for Australians. 

We want it to be easier. We also want it to be fair.

That’s why we’re interested in Blockchain voting.  It’s time we used technology to bring back public trust in elections and election results across Australia.

 

How Blockchain Voting Could Work

Why Blockchain

Blockchain is being used by banks and the financial services industry to move money and get people paid, quickly, efficiently, safely and securely.  We think voting in Australia should be just that:  quick, efficient, safe and secure.  If Blockchain works for money, it can work for votes.

When you go to vote, you want to be sure that no one else can vote in your name and no one else can vote more than once in an election. Blockchain can help make Australian elections more reliable, fair, safe and secure.  It’s all in the architecture and how it works.

 

So, what is Blockchain?

Blockchain experts use the example that Blockchain behaves like a financial ledger.  In financial ledgers, information from different financial accounts must balance before the ledger can be considered correct.  That’s the idea behind Blockchain voting:  votes from different polling places around the state or around the country must balance with the number of actual enrolled voters and the places where they are registered to vote. 

With an old-school central database like we have today, a hacker acting alone or for an organisation or foreign government can manipulate results almost undetected even while results are being counted. 

With Blockchain, hacking is much more difficult and virtually impossible.  That’s because Blockchain has instant checks and balances that a central database cannot offer.  Basically, everyone involved in the election, including political parties and their candidates, can watch and see in real-time what is happening as votes are delivered and counted.  This can help make voting checking must faster and more reliable.  If the numbers don’t add up, then everyone knows and checks can be done to solve the problem.

In an ideal world, votes are counted quickly, fairly and honestly and we can get results within minutes instead of hours, days, weeks and sometimes months.

 

 

 

So, what does it mean for you?

Blockchain means easy, safe and secure voting using your mobile phone, computer or any digital device connected to the Internet.  No more long lines waiting to vote.  Quick and easy convenient – and fair!

If you think your right to choose your government is important, get behind our campaign for a better, fairer, more trustworthy election-day system.  Tell your local parliamentarian to get behind Blockchain for a stronger, fairer Australian democracy.

    I totally Agree! Voting in Australia by paper is in my opinion is out dated, it’s time that the Australian Government Electorate is Updated to a Secure Identification Online Voting System.

    I went to vote on 18 May 2019 no ID was asked.

    WE need to change the system if we are to have just one vote for one Party, in the UK the DUP received a total of just over 200.000 votes they won 10 seats, and control the government, two other Party’s received almost 4.000.000 votes each they won 1 seat, that’s the same as having a cricket match where 1 team has 11 players and the other team 168 players . in India the PM s Party received 200.000.000 votes said to be a landslide win, yet 700.000.000 did not vote for him, that’s how the one voting system works, the minority always win, and that is why there is so much corruption in politics,
