Political Experts Oppose Using Blockchain For Voting After Midterm Elections


Tuesday’s midterm elections have reignited the discussion concerning the voting process and what the best method is. Blockchain was one of the methods discussed. Jasmine Boyce of NBC reported that there is a heated social media debate concerning whether there are benefits of using blockchain in polling venues.

Princeton professor Arvind Narayan stated,

Another professor, Dr. Angela Walch of St. Mary’s University stated,

Narayan shares Walch’s position. He recently criticized the New York Times for pushing blockchain in voting. Interestingly enough, Boyce also called out those who have been stating that blockchain may be the equivalent of the “cure” for cancer concerning voting.

At this point, the recent midterm election shows the discourse concerning the issue. The role of blockchain in the electoral process is a questionable one. Further, if the United States does adopt blockchain in the voting process, it won’t be the first to do so. For example, Tsukuba, a Japanese city, recently introduced blockchain into the voting system. Though, there is not much information in terms of how the integration has been faring.
