One Proven System to Conduct All Types of Elections and Votes

Elections and votes occur within a variety of rulesets, timeframes, and locales. To make Electa as adaptable as possible to these different circumstances, it offers two main setups for voting events, which we term Scheduled Voting and Live Conference Voting.

You may use them separately, or you may combine them in a “hybrid” solution in which eligible voters may both asynchronously cast ballots and vote synchronously on agenda items in real time at a conference.

While both options are fully documented, secure, and end-to-end verifiable with numerous features to ensure maximum usability for voters and managers alike, they each have different setup options which may work better for certain types of voting events.

Assembly Voting-Electa-Scheduled Voting
Assembly Voting-Electa-Live Conference Voting

Designed for votes occurring over a longer period of time

Ballots may be set up to open and close at predetermined points

Optimal for events with larger numbers of voters who cast ballots asynchronously

Often used in candidate elections, statutory elections, etc.

Well-suited for “live” events taking place within a shorter timeframe

Meeting conductor can open and close ballots at will

Results of votes can be made public instantaneously for participants

Often used in annual general meetings and conferences

End-to-end Verifiability

Many online election systems in use today suffer from technological and/or procedural gaps in their programming which open the door to speculation and doubts about the integrity of elections carried out using them. End-to-end verifiability closes these gaps by demonstrating that any election results are undoubtedly accurate.

Electa

(End-to-end verifiable)

Ensures eligibility

Verifying voter eligibility is crucial for maintaining the trustworthiness of digital elections. It prevents unauthorized voting and ensures each voter can cast only one ballot.

Anonymity proven by design

In digital voting, cryptographic techniques and mixing algorithms are used to ensure voter anonymity, making it impossible to link votes to individual voters.

Distributed trust

The system disperses responsibilities related to the conduction of elections amongst multiple parties, enhancing an election’s integrity.

Vote secrecy proven by design

Cryptographic techniques and threshold encryption safeguard both the integrity and secrecy of votes for a fair election.

Public ballot box

In digital voting, the “Public Ballot Box” acts as an open record for all election activities, allowing for thorough verification while keeping voter identities confidential.

Full auditability

The “Independent Audit” feature in Electa enables public, third-party verification, boosting any election’s transparency and security.

Integrity of election results proven by design

End-to-end verifiable digital voting ensures the integrity of results through cryptographic techniques and measures to guarantee transparency, making the election both tamper-proof and auditable.

Black-box systems

(Not end-to-end verifiable)

Ensures eligibility

In black-box systems, it is possible to conduct robust identity checks to make sure that only eligible voters may cast ballots.

Anonymity cannot be proven

In black-box systems, the inability to verify voter anonymity can discourage participation and make fraud detection harder, eroding trust and compromising an election’s integrity.

No distributed trust

A lack of distributed trust in blackbox voting centralizes control and threatens an election’s integrity, damaging public confidence.

Vote secrecy cannot be proven

Lack of verifiable vote secrecy in black-box systems can deter voters from casting ballots and leave them susceptible to coercion, undermining both an election’s integrity and public trust.

No public ballot box

The absence of a public ballot box in black-box systems renders them opaque and unable to be audited, affecting public trust while making recounts challenging.

Limited auditability

Limited auditability in black-box systems hampers transparency, makes error tracing difficult, and leaves the system vulnerable to fraud, sacrificing an election’s integrity.

Integrity of election results cannot be proven

When utilizing black-box systems, the inability to verify the integrity of results can raise doubts, enable manipulation, and complicate issue resolution, making measures like end-to-end verifiability crucial.
