An efficient end to end verifiable voting system

Abstract : Electronic voting systems have become a powerful technology for the improvement of democracy by reducing the cost of elections, increasing voter turnout and even allowing voters to directly check the entire electoral process. End-to-end (E2E) verifiability has been widely identified as a critical property for the adoption of such voting systems for electoral procedures. Moreover, one of the pillars of any vote, apart from the secret of the vote and the integrity of the result, lies in the transparency of the process, the possibility for the voters "to understand the underlying system" without resorting to the competences techniques. The end-to-end verifiable electronic voting systems proposed in the literature do not always guarantee it because they require additional configuration hypotheses, for example the existence of a trusted third party as a random source or the existence of a random beacon. Hence, building a reliable verifiable end-to-end voting system offering confidentiality and integrity remains an open research problem. In this work, we are presenting a new verifiable end-to-end electronic voting system requiring only the existence of a coherent voting board, fault-tolerant, which stores all election-related information and allows any party as well as voters to read and verify the entire election process. The property of our system is information guaranteed given the existence of the bulletin board, the involvement of the voters and the political parties in the process. This involvement does not compromise the confidentiality nor integrity of the elections and does not require cryptographic operations on the voters account.
