Can blockchain technology make online voting reliable?

“Basically, blockchain can provide a method for voters to be reliably and securely signed up to vote, and then when votes are cast, blockchain can be a mechanism for proving that someone has the right to vote, based on their prior registration,” Hardman informed Cointelegraph. The design appears transparent and unchangeable, how would authorities understand if votes came from citizens who just voted one time? “On the backend, you prove that for any provided registration, you can cast exactly one vote,” Hardman stated. “If you understand that, ya understand, John Smith from 123 Main Street in Pennsylvania has a particular finger print, then its pretty hard for someone else to cast a vote on his behalf,” Hardman explained.That stated, what then stops governments and companies from taking benefit of such personal information for tracking and other usages?”You ask somebody at registration time to strongly recognize, you know, who they are, where they live and so forth, however at the time they cast their vote, what you ask them is to show that they have the advantage of casting the vote without revealing who they are,” Hardman explained.

“Basically, blockchain can offer a method for voters to be dependably and securely registered to vote, and then when votes are cast, blockchain can be a mechanism for showing that somebody has the right to vote, based on their prior registration,” Hardman informed Cointelegraph. The design appears transparent and unchangeable, how would authorities know if votes came from residents who only voted one time?”You ask someone at registration time to highly recognize, you know, who they are, where they live and so forth, but at the time they cast their vote, what you ask them is to prove that they have the opportunity of casting the vote without divulging who they are,” Hardman discussed.
