Cats and Dogs An Integrity for Voting Systems Based on Paper Ballots

İhsan Haluk Akın

Abstract: Abstract—Voting systems based on paper ballots has a long history with various problems. Vote-selling and correct outcome are two major problems among many. In this work, we propose a new solution to these problems by using UltraViolet (UV) fiber paper Physical Unclonable Function (PUF). When applied this solution not only prevents vote-selling but also ensures the correctness of the outcome. With these two problems eliminated, the voting systems based on paper ballots will have complete integrity.
