BLOCKCHAIN FOR VOTING AND ELECTIONS

On July 5th,  the president of the Government Blockchain Association in Miami and CEO of Logos Capital Silvio F. Pupo will be hosting a roundtable to brainstorm with elected officials and civic organizers to understand the challenges and opportunities that exist to improve our most fundamental democratic liberty; voting. Join the conversation to help shape our future.

The use of blockchain in the public sector reached another milestone when West Virginia became the first U.S. state to allow internet voting by blockchain in its May 2018 primary elections. It can be a beneficial tool for the election commission to maintain transparency in the electoral process, minimize the cost of conducting elections, streamline the process of counting votes and ensure that all votes are counted. 

The County of Los Angeles has announced that they are rolling out a “voter centric solution”. The Voting Solutions for All People (VSAP) was developed by the Registrar-Recorder/County to address an aging voting system and an increasingly large and complex electorate. The project seeks a collaborative approach to voting system design that will put voters at the center and maximize stakeholder participation.

What should we consider for the future of voting and polling in South Florida?

In blockchain, each vote forms part of a chain of votes, where it is mathematically proven by the third party participant. Using blockchain, all data of the election process can be recorded on a publicly verifiable ledger while maintaining the anonymity of voters, with results available instantly.

According to Pete Martin, CEO of Votem and a proponent of online voting, we are two years away from major online elections running on blockchain in the U.S.

We will be hosting a roundtable to brainstorm with elected officials and civic organizers to understand the challenges and opportunities that exist to improve our most fundamental democratic liberty; voting.

May you please participate in the conversation to help shape our future?
