Survey On E-Voting using Block Chain Technology

Yash G. Gupta, Arun kushwaha, Amar S. Rajeevan, Govind Mhala, Bhagyashree Dhakulkar


The inflaming use of current digital technology has transformed the life of people. Unlike the current electoral system, there are various applications as such. Security is an outmost priority which is predominant in the election with the offline system. The existing electoral system still uses a Centralized system in which an organization has full access grant. The problems encountered are mostly due to outdated electoral systems with the organization that has total control over the system as well as the database. Database tampering is a major reason which causes huge problems in the system. Our answer to this problem is Block Chain Technology. Block chain Technology is an ideal solution as it holds a decentralized system and the database is owned by various users. Examples like Bit coin can be taken as a good example of Block Chain Technology application as it uses a decentralized bank system. By applying the concept of block chain in the existing electoral system, it can reduce the deceitful sources of database action. Our project aims to apply voting results using block chain algorithms from all place of election. Unlike Bitcoin, this process based on a pre-set turn on the system for each node in the built of block chain.
