Voting Over the Blockchain

How One Tezos-Based App is Democratizing Elections

Elections, historically have often been questioned for their accuracy and transparency and now one blockchain-based platform has created arguably one of the most secure and reliable platforms for elections to be conducted digitally. Electis, a voting platform that has been used by over 20,000 voters since its launch, has aligned itself with one of the most “green” and environmentally friendly blockchain providers Tezos. It is perhaps for this reason that Electis has been most popular among government agencies and nonprofit organizations that are focused on the realms of sustainability, climate change and carbon footprints.

Organizations using Electis for democratic voting

Electis has grown in popularity since its inception and is now regularly used to conduct fair and open-source elections among a wide network of parties. The most recent of which include the official children and youth constituency of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). This nonprofit, part of the UN, is comprised of a global network of both children and youth activists as well as youth NGOs, who are working on developing policies on climate change. Their votes see the future trajectory of this organization take shape as they contribute their voices to the policies of the UNFCCC. Another UN organization that has chosen the Electis platform for democratic voting is the SDG7 Youth Constituency, a means for youth to have their voices heard in the energy sector, more specifically on renewable energy sources.  According to a member of the global support team at SDG7 Youth constituency “Electis is our trusted partner for this year’s election campaign – and hopefully for all future elections”. The  Women and Gender Constituency is one of nine official observers for the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), which holds member states accountable for keeping warming beneath 1.5 degrees Celcius, while practicing respect for human rights and  Women’s and Gender Issues, has also used Electis. Electis bases its app on secure and transparent e-voting, which places confidentiality and verifiability at the heart of its product.  It does this through the use of blockchain technology, which due to its architecture is tamperproof from the outside. This makes both the process and outcome of voting fair, and due to its digital nature allows voters to participate in votes no matter where they are in the world. Electis chose Tezos blockchain to build its application due to its environmentally friendly nature, as well as its speed and security of transactions.

We use functional programming to write robust code that works anywhere, anytime.

Initially, we worked with StakerDAO to implement the STKR governance token a monitoring app on Tezos. After that, we moved to BLND token and implemented a set of Ethereum contracts for holding BLND and performing buyback with them.

We also implemented a web app to run the buyback process.

After that, we designed and implemented the Bridge application and associated set of contracts that allow exchanging BLND and wXTZ tokens between Ethereum and Tezos.
We are working on Bridge backend support for ALgorand now.
