“Voting on the blockchain is not blue-sky thinking. There have been successful examples all over the world. For example, the Republican Party used blockchain in Utah for its primary voting in 2016. Citizens in Mexico organized a blockchain-based voting system for their 2018 presidential elections as a way to further verify the electoral process. West Virginia is currently exploring voting on the blockchain. While other states might have forgotten them, West Virginia is empowering military men, women and their families, many of whom come from very rural towns across West Virginia or work outside our country, to make use of blockchain technology to participate in a more reliable and secure voting process. My research team at WVU is working on an effort to involve rural communities in the usage of state-of-the-art technology.”
