How Online Voting Works

1
CREDENTIALS
Voter Authentication & Credentials

Online voting enables voter authentication via pre-existing or new voting authentication methods (digital certificates, password based credentials, etc.) Once authenticated, voter credentials are securely generated and delivered giving voters the means to verify that their vote has been cast-as-intended, recorded-as-cast and counted-as-recorded.

2
VOTING
Voting

Once voters make and confirm their selections, votes are encrypted before leaving the voters’ device, ensuring they remain secret throughout the casting, transmission and tallying processes. For additional vote integrity, the encrypted votes are digitally signed on the voters’ device.

3
RECORDING & VERIFICATION
Ballot Box Recording & Verification

Once digitally signed and encrypted votes are cast in the ballot box, the voting servers check if the contents of the votes are valid without decrypting the votes or breaking vote secrecy. The integrity of the ballot box is verified by using the bulletin board, digital signatures and mathematical proofs of the votes providing evidence of the accuracy of the counting process and the accuracy of the results.

4
TALLY
Mixing, Decryption & Tallying

After the election is closed, all the online votes are securely consolidated and transferred for “mixing” by the electoral organization. Votes are decrypted using a verifiable mix-net and secret sharing scheme. The “mixing” process breaks the correlation between encrypted votes & voters ensuring voter privacy when votes are decrypted and their content is tallied.
