The University of Surrey and the Victorian Electoral Commission, in collaboration with the Universities of Melbourne and Luxembourg have developed a new advanced electronic voting system.
The system is designed using cryptography to provide ballot secrecy for voters and end-to-end verifiability to assure that the system has processed the votes correctly.
This new advanced e-voting system is to be used in the forthcoming Australia’s Victorian State election. This is the first time that an electronic election system that can be checked at every stage is used in a large-scale political election.
The use of a touchscreen and audio interface provides anonymous and straightforward electronically assisted voting in twenty languages enabling people with vision impairments, limited mobility and low English language proficiency to securely and confidently cast their votes.
