Abstract: In this paper we present an electronic voting protocol valid for multiple elections. The work is based on a variant of the ElGamal digital signature. Our proposed method allows to run t elections using the same parameters. We use the RSA blind signature for all transactions in the voting process. Security and complexity of the presented scheme are analysed.

Keywords: public key cryptography; e-voting; digital signature; blind signature; discrete logarithm problem.
