The right of every citizen to participate in government through free and fair elections is well settled under international human rights law, as is the right to freedom of expression and to hold opinions without interference.
The 🦠 Covid-19 situation forced many things to shift online. We wondered what it would be like to conduct democratic elections online. While that is the far-far future, we set about building something that could get us a step closer towards that future.
VOTEism is a secure political opinion poll app to express your preference for one electoral candidate or the other.
VOTEism is currently available for voting only in the USA and Belarus.
Current political opinion polls are riddled with low sample sizes, interviewer biases, push poll tactics, self voting sock-puppets, and worst of all, the lack of privacy. ⏱️ Time to change that. VOTEism seeks to fix opinion polls.
Your vote is encrypted with a public key 🔏 and is decrypted with the private key on an air-gapped system. Anonymized and aggregated results are published on the VOTEism mobile apps.
