Moscow Counts on Blockchain for Fair Elections

The capital of Russia is currently exploring ways to advance their Active Citizen polling network to log votes in forthcoming elections. This would make the election process transparent to the public and tamper-free.
Since 2004 the Russian city has had a program called Active Citizen which allows citizens to vote on big plans to lessen the chance of corruption. In 2017, the Active Citizen program was transferred to a Blockchain network where ideally, the data can never be deleted, changed, and the system can never be hacked. Today, it already has an added private version of the Ethereum network to the current infrastructure which aims towards executing this into the city’s voting process.
Through this easier and efficient process, the city government intends to assure its citizens that their votes would not be subject to manipulation and to confirm to the world that elections in Russia can be free and fair.
A decentralized blockchain voting system makes sense and is essential, even, in an era where hackers from in or out of the country have the power to manipulate election results.
Currently, there is 88 million casted votes for more than 2,700 projects. With the use of blockchain for their next election, there can be no disagreements over the results. But the conflict coming from government officials is something bigger that is yet to be confronted, and something which cannot be fixed by a blockchain network in existence today.
