Abstract

nThe increasing need for secure and transparent voting systems has led to the exploration of blockchain technology as a solution for online voting. This paper presents an innovative approach to online voting using blockchain, aiming to enhance the integrity, security, and transparency of the electoral process. Because of the decentralized, tamper-proof ledger that blockchain technology offers, every vote is reliably recorded and unchangeable. This study outlines the design and implementation of an online voting system leveraging blockchain’s distributed ledger technology. Key features of the proposed system include voter anonymity, vote immutability, and verifiability, addressing common challenges such as fraud, coercion, and vote manipulation. Through a comprehensive analysis, the paper evaluates the system’s performance, scalability, and potential real-world applications. The findings suggest that blockchain-based voting systems can significantly improve the trust and efficiency of elections, though further research and development are necessary to address scalability and accessibility concerns. This paper contributes to the growing body of knowledge on the application of blockchain technology in democratic processes and provides a foundation for future advancements in secure online voting.
