Abstract: In the past, electronic voting systems have not seen widespread adoption due to data privacy concerns. Previously proposed e-voting systems make use of a central database to store data, resulting in the servers used to store these databases being a single point of failure. These systems have also been found to be vulnerable to DoS attacks, leading to concerns over their reliability.Blockchains have been used to build secure and scalable distributed systems which have shown several benefits over centralized systems. They have seen uses in sectors ranging from finance and healthcare to food and energy.In this paper, we present VoteChain, a blockchain based voting system to help bring transparency and security to polls. We report on our implementation of VoteChain, as well as the results obtained in testing the system in a real-world poll which prove that such a system can be used in practice for large-scale elections. © 2019 IEEE.
