To bring voting into the digital age, they developed a technological solution that ensures security, transparency and support for new devices.
Agora.vote ecosystem central strengths are cryptographic security and a distributed and decentralized network architecture. Our technology protects election data against intervention from any third party that would seek to subvert the election process, including Agora.
Because election data is stored on a publicly accessible ledger, all stakeholders can verify the validity of election results as well as all intermediate steps of the voting process. Each voter is also able to verify that his or her vote has been accurately registered in the total count and that it remained unaltered.
Agora.vote ecosystem makes digital voting more secure than any voting machine, failure-prone centralized framework or physical paper trail while keeping ballots strictly anonymous. The choices that each voter makes remain absolutely private through verifiable ballot encryption and anonymization.
Voting from a digital device removes the need to physically travel to a polling station, which benefits minorities who have trouble accessing them. It also offers modern voters a method of participating which fits their everyday life.
