What is SEEV?

For the past 20 years, researchers have been developing verifiable e-voting systems, but few of the resulting systems have been used in real-world elections. The e-voting systems that have been used in large democracies such as India, Brazil and the US are unverifiable; and there have been security-related concerns about vote-tampering.

A major obstacle for deploying verifiable e-voting technologies is their reliance on “trusted authorities” - such as government-appointed election officers - to tally votes. Such reliance makes the electoral process fragile, as it is dependent on a few selected people. Moreover, these people need to have expertise in computer science and cryptography. It is precisely the need for such reliance on “trusted authorities” that motivated us to design our system.

We provide a means whereby voters can independently verify that their votes are accurately captured and tallied by the system; ensuring that the integrity of their vote is maintained. In the process, we eliminate reliance on authorities who tally the cast votes, so the election is self-tallying.
