Authors(4) :-Akshaya Selva S, Anusuya R V, Dhanya N K, Sharmila Rani D

Democratic voting is a crucial and serious event in a country. The most common way in a country votes through a paper based system, but is it not time to bring voting into the 21st century of modern technology Digital voting system uses electronic devices such as voting machines or an internet browser to cast votes. These are sometimes referred to as e-voting where voting use a machine in a polling station and i-voting when using a web browser. Security of digital voting is always the biggest concern to implement a digital voting system. One way the security issues can be potentially solved through the technology of block chain. Block chain technology originates from the architectural design of the cryptocurrency bitcoin. With the use of block chains a secure and robust system for 4 digital voting can be devised. The report outlines our idea of how block chain technology could be used to implement a secure digital voting system.
