Voatz is an award-winning blockchain-based platform that enables citizens to vote in all kinds of elections or voting events via smartphone or tablet. Past attempts at internet based voting have failed or not gone mainstream due to fundamental concerns around security, auditability and voter anonymity. With Voatz, using biometrics for security and the blockchain for irrefutability, we are able to tackle all these challenges and significantly streamline the process of voting and identity verification.
Voatz aims to:
1) increase voter turnout,
2) increase the transparency of elections, and
3) combat electoral fraud.
The demo will showcase how to easily vote with Voatz on smartphone and tablet.
