Same-day voting process open to abuse – Votecoin would fix this problem.

Hello fellow citizens and solution seeker. Below is an article outlying some of the problems surrounding a so-called “same day voting process” taking place in New Hampshire. Votecoin would fix this problem.

Excerpt from the original article:

On Nov. 4, almost 35,000 people in New Hampshire turned out at the polls to register and cast a ballot. It was a record turnout for same-day registrations, but Secretary of State Bill Gardner said he has concerns there are not enough safeguards in place.

Despite repeated attempts by the legislature recently to require a valid identification at polls, all that’s needed to cast a ballot in New Hampshire is a signature swearing you are who you say you are.

Gardner said he believes that’s not enough.

“We’ve had two elections now with action taken by the Legislature overturned by the courts,” Gardner said.

Sen. Sharon Carson, R-Nashua, is drafting a pair of bills to address the issue. One would require someone to live in New Hampshire for at least 30 days before voting.

“We have a problem,” Carson said. “We have a problem with what Gardner called ‘drive-by voting’ — people coming here for the day, voting and then leaving.”

Sen. Lou D’Allesandro, D-Manchester, said he believes the effort is little more than sour grapes by a party that has failed to navigate what he calls the sophisticated process of getting out the vote.

“You get the data, you go to the people, you get them to vote — it’s a basic principle of the new politics,” D’Allesandro said.

Election oversight falls to the Attorney General’s Office, which said that while there are complaints under investigation, voter fraud is not an epidemic.

“There’s always a challenge when you have to balance the fundamental rights of voting with the state’s interest in making sure those who are voting are who they say they are,” said Assistant Attorney General Steve Labonte.

A case that could have an impact on the state’s voter eligibility requirements is pending in the state Supreme Court.”

Thank you for visiting the official Vote Coin blog.

Vote Coin is an open source voting system. It was inspired by bitcoin in 2012, and allows for citizens to vote for candidates with a transparent system.

What makes Vote Coin different from the traditional 70 year old voting technologies, is that Vote Coin is transparent to everyone and allows for voting from anywhere there is an internet connection. After the so-called elections are closed, computer savvy individuals will have public access if they desire to audit the chain of votes which will have unique hash IDs. This will make sure that all the votes are tallied legally, and accurately. The Vote Coin ledger will then be backed up, and published, so that it can be audited at any point in the future. No system is perfect, but with a free and open system citizens have the chance to improve on the technology.

When was the idea of cryptographic voting conceived?

Voting technology is a taboo discussion because many people do not want to jeopardize their jobs and stature by challenging the now archaic voting system.  But discussions of a cryptography based voting system can be traced back to several discussion boards over the past 15 years. One such paper is the Chris Karlof paper called “Cryptographic Voting Protocols: A Systems Perspective” https://www.usenix.org/legacy/event/sec05/tech/full_papers/karlof/karlof.pdf

Recent Vote Coin concept:

Early in 2013 when bitcoin was starting to bloom and gain major mainstream attention, Charles Level started posting theories, ideological concepts, and starting various discussions about Vote Coin (votecoin VoteCoin©™ ). About 100 posts were made by Charles Level to Reddit categories, over the years, and several individuals and entities claimed to have created vote coin, and even started a sub category called /r/votecoin.

In 2014 a fictional person calling themselves “Steven Funk” perpetrated to create the idea of “Votecoin” and started a page on a so-called crowd funding site called Startjoin.com. This was not the first instance of VoteCoin being discussed. Our team has followed their so-called “fund raising campaign” but have not seen any credible mainstream evidence that their code was created or successfully implements.
