A voting app is being developed by WinterGreen Research and Government Blockchain Association (GBA) that will use blockchain technology to “make fraud detectable”. 

Susan Eustis, President of WinterGreen Research says that she expects COVID-19 might accelerate its adoption:

“We anticipate that the digital voting app will roll out quickly, just as the telemedicine market was eclipsed by virtual care delivery from Cisco WebEx and Zoom. Physicians went from doing 200 televisits per year to 36,000 per week within the past month. The same market driving forces impact voting as impact healthcare delivery.”

However, the implementation of such an app would have to be approved on a state-by-state basis. Eustis says that she already interacted with some of the state-level officials and hopes for its adoption that by the November US Presidential elections.

Eustis has had conversations with some state-level officials and is optimistic about its adoption in time for the U.S Presidential elections in November. WinterGreen Research has also prepared a training course for the election officials.

Eustis continued:

“The WinterGreen Research team has prepared to start training election officials at the local level within a couple weeks. Virtual voting is the best of any recommended solutions for social distancing and mitigating the spread of COVID-19.”

Eustis further says that they are currently exploring on private blockchains for their application while maintaining that the developer will soon be announced.

The Government Blockchain Association (GBA) is currently working on the blockchain standards for the app, while WinterGreen Research will be training election officials if the app gets adopted.
