Abstract
Traditional voting techniques, such as paper ballots or electronic voting machines, have fundamental weaknesses that compromise their credibility. These shortcomings include lack of transparency, poor voter turnout, potential vote tampering, distrust in electoral authorities, forging unique IDs, delays in result declaration, and security issues. Therefore, it is crucial to guarantee the security of electronic voting systems. Blockchain technology is one promising answer to the security challenges associated with digital voting. Blockchain is a distributed ledger technology that provides crucial qualities such as immutability, security, transparency, decentralization, and anonymity, making it a potentially effective alternative for developing a more secure e-voting system. This paper describes the development and testing of an example Ethereum network smart contract application for electronic voting using blockchain technology. In order to avoid the chance of duplicate votes, the system restricts the quantity of token (gas) provided in the wallet, which is used up when the user casts their vote. The pros and cons of employing blockchain technology for electronic voting are examined, and a web application for voting is used to demonstrate the practical system and highlight its drawbacks. In conclusion, creating a more secure, transparent, and reliable e-voting system seems to be a viable application of blockchain technology with smart contracts. However, before using the technology on a larger scale, it is essential to understand its limitations and deal with any potential problems.
