Layer X Announces Development Of Blockchain-Based Electronic Voting System
Layer X, the Japanese firm, has announced the development of a blockchain-based electronic voting system as part of a wider “smart city” initiative being pursued by Tsukuba City.
It has been reported that the new system will meet the technical needs of electronic voting, including the prevention of double voting, accurate storage of voting content, voter confidentiality, and management of operation records.
However, it will enable voters to check their own voting results by providing the cryptographic ability to verify that the recording and aggregation processes for the votes on the blockchain network was performed correctly.
The company explained that through its new system, it seeks to push for a shift towards electronic voting in local governments.

It also indicated that it is working to strengthen efforts aimed at solving technical problems related to the digital transformation (DX) of various administrative services.
Also, Layer X announced that it will join the Tsukuba City, Ibaraki Prefecture smart council, which aims to transform Tsukuba into a “smart city” and move it into the digital age.
As the coronavirus pandemic has caused many countries and local states to develop blockchain-based online voting options, Russia has already experimented with blockchain-based electronic voting and has also published the source code for the platform on GitHub.
Thus, the French commune of Verneuil-sur-Seine took a vote on a road project through a blockchain-based app, and the Michigan Democratic Party announced a successful electronic voting experiment through the blockchain-based Voatz platform.
