Abstract: There exist many different electronic voting solutions and each has its own set of advantages and disadvantages. Most of the existing systems suffer from inadequate transparency and auditability. However, recently introduced blockchain technology may provide a solution to these problems. In this paper, auditable blockchain voting system (ABVS) is presented. It combines existing voting approach and combines it with blockchain technology to create a supervised and remote internet voting system, which is transparent and audit capable. The paper describes the system's processes, components, model and results of initial testing.
Keywords: e-voting; electronic voting; blockchain; audit; verification; e-voting system.
