Blockchain in Election : Use Cases

Estonia is known for first country in the world to hold the parliamentary election online. But we also have few other countries / counties that have implemented blockchain for voting. Blockchain has already been used for the union election, local government, and election within the political parties. Here are some use cases:

Active Citizen Program – Moscow

Launched by Moscow Mayor Sergey Sobyanin , this was firstly an e-voting platform which was designed to allow the citizens to put their opinion and weigh in administrative functions of city like speed limits, bus routes and naming the train stations. Active Citizens motto is “The city entrusts you to decide” . But to avoid the fake and fraud votes, the city decided to use the blockchain based identity to each user. Also for each votes casted the Muscovites get points each time which they can redeem to pay for parking ticket or train fare.

Gyeonggi-do Program – South Korea

One of the most populous province in South Korea utilized the  Blocko’s blockchain based voting platform to gather votes in the community projects. In 2017, as many as 9000 votes were counted which was used to decide for the selection of more than 500 community projects. According to Won-Beom Kim, CEO of Blocko,  with the blockchain technology for online voting , government can save a lot of money and resource in holding the election, safety and voter fraud. With the data stored in digital ledger, counterfeiting and tempering of the votes data is virtually impossible.

Nasdaq in Tallin – Estonia

The annual share holder meeting that is run by NASDAQ’s subsidiary in Estonia piloted the blockchain technology to authenticate the e voting system for the shareholders at company’s annual meeting. Nasdaq said that it uses blockchain in traditional way to record the securities ownership.

Blockchain based election – Sierra Leone

To reduce the cost of running the paper ballots and the corruption in the voting process, Sierra Leone ran a blockchain based voting system backed by Agora. Agora anonymously stores the votes in an immutable ledger and thus providing instant access to the election results.

Blockchain supported Election – West Virginia

To primarily allow the troops abroad to participate in voting system, West Virginia allowed blockchain based mobile app to vote for midterm election. No other state in history of US had allowed blockchain based voting for federal election. With the Voatz, 144 individuals from 33 different countries were able to submit to the ballots.
