As announced yesterday by FollowMyVote, which aims to build an electronic voting system on the blockchain, a development campaign has started to create a system based on the EOS blockchain in view of next year’s US presidential elections.

The project, requested by the community, and taken over by the CEO, Adam Ernest, involves creating software that uses the EOS blockchain to allow people to vote for their candidates and also allow them to change their vote.

 All this will occur with an end-to-end process that will allow verified users to vote. Votes will then be secured in a “ballot box” recorded on the blockchain, so users who have voted will be able to see their vote in real-time.

 The project is in the development phase and is trying to involve as many people as possible in order to have a complete and reliable final product.

 The topic of blockchain-based voting is a much-discussed issue in the industry as many consider it an important goal to be achieved in order to have a system free from flaws as compared to the traditional one. However, it is difficult to combine the two, as recalled by the Italian Constitution, in Article 48:

 “The vote is defined as personal, equal, free and secret, and its execution is considered a civic duty”.

 The characteristic of the vote is precisely secrecy, which is difficult to achieve with public blockchains.
