The French commune of Verneuil-sur-Seine is using blockchain technology to vote in consultation over a 50-year-old road project between three towns.

It has been reported by Verneuil-sur-Seine’s official website that the commune as well as nearby towns Vernouillet and Chapet are allowing blockchain-based votes through the Yvelinoise-based startup Avosvotes from October 1–8.

However, residents can voice their opinions on a road bypass between the towns of Orgeval to Les Mureaux near the Seine River by voting for or against the project. 

The blockchain voting app verifies residents’ identities, provides certificates stored on the Tezos blockchain as proof votes were cast through smart contracts, and allow real-time tracking as votes come in.

The Verneuil-sur-Seine website states that the consultation will occur simultaneously across the three towns, with all results counted independently. 

Florian Ribière, the CEO of Avosvotes, said:

“In Verneuil-sur-Seine, the decentralized and secure voting evidence on the blockchain resulting from French researchers at Tezos will make it possible to guarantee the sincerity of the ballot.”

Ribière added:

“The vote will thus be 100% secure and each voter will be able to check that their vote has been taken into account during the digital count.”

Thus, until October 6, residents of the commune with a population of around 16,000 had cast 476 votes.
