Welcome To Remote Voting Conference 2020

Exploring Blockchain for Free, Fair, Transparent and Inclusive Elections

Election Commission of India (ECI) is a constitutional authority responsible for conducting National and State level elections in India. ECI conducts the largest electoral exercise in the world, namely, the General Elections of India where over 900 million voters exercise their franchise. ECI proactively uses technology for conducting elections and ensuring that they are free, fair, transparent and inclusive. With enterprises and governments around the world implementing Blockchain Technology for various applications, ECI wishes to explore if this technology can be leveraged for providing a secure facility for “remote voting” to migrants who have temporarily relocated due to employment, education or other reasons. This webinar has been planned to discuss the possibility of using Blockchain Technology for “remote voting” and to understand its implementation challenges.
