Make Elections Transparent

We are trying to make elections transparent.

We have access to real-estate all around the country of USA. We are developing a new system of voting, that compares the voters bio-metric details, and uses a cryptographic key (unique to every voter) to submit and validate their ballots.

Results are generated instantly - no need to wait for days.

Summary :

1. Bio-metric details implies there is no fraud, no dead person can vote.
2. Cryptographic key ensures that each vote is anonymous.
3. Blockchain technology is used to submit the vote anonymously to a public P2P cloud, so that everyone can validate and audit the vote
4. Everything is completely anonymous.
5. P2P technology guarantees that no hacker can take it down

We need to make a proof of concept. This will take $ 10 000 (ten thousand USD). Please donate.

Details :

Each citizen, when registering for voting, will receive a card with his public and private key, and his bio-metric details. HE has to legitimize himself with his bio-metric details and this card during voting. If this there is no match, the citizen can't vote.

The citizen will then insert the card in a slot of the machine, and cast his ballot using a touch screen. The ballot is signed by his secret private key.

Then using a series of mathematically verifiable checking and signing algorithms, then votes are signed (anonymously). The system also filters out attempts to cast more ballots than granted to the voter.

The booth and the machine status is also continuously auditable via a separate set of public keys, through another P2P cloud.

The machines can be preprogrammed with a date of publication. They are GPS time synchronized, and on the preset day, nationwide all machines will publish their results.

The publication means, that the valid votes are then submitted to a public P2P cloud, where all public key of all citizen is present. These votes can later be checked and audited with the public keys. If these are valid, a match will be found. If not, no match will be found and can be marked as fraudulent. However, the pipeline anyways ensures that will not happen.

Costs :

We will need about 7000 USD to hire several freelancers, while 2000 USD goes for equipment and electronics. GofundMe will take 350 USD approximately, and 650 USD is planned for contingency. These are only the costs of the PoC. Later costs will be raised by cooperating with federal government. Interested citizens can continue donating.

When this is established, we will assemble the machines in USA, and will be able to create jobs for people to assemble, program, and maintain the systems. All algorithms will be published in public domain for full scrutiny.
