Project poster

The existing voting process has not kept up with technological changes and the emerging threats. The election procedure is highly decentralized since each state has its own devices and methods for registering votes. Currently, there is no simple, user-friendly, and efficient method for verifying elections that can be widely adopted with relative ease. Our election verifier enables independent public verification of the cast vote. ElectionGuard verifier is an open-source, lightweight, and platform-independent system that can be used by any voter to check if their votes were cast correctly, without giving away which candidate the voter voted for.
