Blockchain-enabled e-voting system (BEV) is the need of the hour for many organizations and for democracies. With allegations being raised on validity of the voting system and mass protests, e.g., in the USA as well as the allegations of some hired tech companies interfering in elections of different countries, it is indispensable to have a reliable voting system to know the opinion of the voters. As paper ballot has its own issues of processing, safety and ease of e-voting is the way forward. Blockchain-based e-voting system can fix the loopholes that lead to voting frauds by first providing a unique ID to the voter and the eligible voters can cast a ballot anonymously at his comfort using a PC or smartphone. Second, the BEV’s encrypted key and tamper-proof personal IDs can help to ensure the validity of the submitted vote, if any discrepancy happens it can be easily identified by the modified blockchain.
