Trustless, Censorship-Resilient and Scalable Votings in the Permission-based Blockchain Model

Sebastian Gajek and Marco Lewandowsky

Abstract: Voting systems are the tool of choice when it comes to settle an agreement of different opinions. We propose a solution for a trustless, censorship-resilient and scalable electronic voting platform. By leveraging the blockchain together with the functional encryption paradigm, we fully decentralize the system and reduce the risks that a voting provider, like a corrupt government, does censor or manipulate the outcome.
