Abstract

In many countries, the elections are carried out by a single administration and have complete control over the database and system. The administration has to manage the entire election process which occurs for a long period of time. Generic elections still use a centralized system; some of the problems that can occur in conventional electoral systems are that it is possible to tamper with the database of considerable opportunities. The aspect of security and transparency is a threat from a still widespread election with the conventional system (offline). Unlike the electoral system, there are many conventional uses of paper in its implementation. The best way to overcome the difficulty faced is by decentralizing the system used for elections. This can be achieved by making use of Blockchain technology, the entire database is owned by many users in a blockchain. Blockchain itself has been used in the Bitcoin system known as the decentralized Bank system. By adopting blockchain in the distribution of databases on e-voting systems can reduce one of the cheating sources of database manipulation. Unlike Bitcoin with its Proof of Work, this paper proposes a method based on a hyperledger to enable voting.
