Towards Secure Quadratic Voting

Sunoo Park and Ronald L. Rivest

Abstract: We provide an overview of some of the security issues involved in securely implementing Lalley and Weyl's ``Quadratic Voting'', and suggest some possible implementation architectures. Our proposals blend ``end-to-end verifiable'' voting methods with anonymous payments. We also consider new refund rules for quadratic voting, such as a ``lottery'' method.
