Abstract

Since the issue of using e-voting in both corporate and government voting has not yet been fully resolved, there remains a wide scope for improving existing approaches and proposing new protocols enabling the voting system to be resistant to various kinds of attacks. Due to the rapid development of distributed ledger technologies and their potential for solving existing problems we propose a modified protocol of the published earlier voting scheme which is complemented by blockchain technology to increase trust between participants. This approach allows carrying out combined voting of both traditional paper voting and e-voting. In this paper we describe the architecture of our solution, discuss its implementation based on Hyperledger Fabric platform and demonstrate its functionality.
