Residents of the French city of Verneuil-sur-Seine vote on the decision to plan roads through an application on the Tezos blockchain. Voting will last from October 1 to October 8, 2020.
The residents of Verneuil-sur-Seine decide to approve the road project through the Avosvotes app on the Tezos blockchain. The proposal for the construction of the road was created 60 years ago. The proposed road RD 154 will cross the communes of Vernuillet and Verneuil-sur-Seine. The decision made in this regard could affect the entire transport system of the Yvelines department.
“In Verneuil-sur-Seine, decentralized and secure proof of blockchain voting, obtained by researchers using Tezos, will ensure the integrity of the vote,” said Florian Ribiere, CEO of Avosvotes.
Voters will make decisions through Avosvotes, a Tezos blockchain application. When voting, people’s identities are manually verified, and proof of any particular vote is provided in the form of a certificate stored on the Tezos blockchain. Voting participation can be tracked in real time.
Voter fraud and low turnout are among the main electoral problems, both at the local and national levels. However, the blockchain must solve these problems.
“Voting will be 100% secure and every voter will be able to check if their vote was counted in the digital counting,” added Ribière.
Recall that in the spring the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) warned that voting on the blockchain does not solve the security problems of Internet voting and should not be implemented in the United States.
