Layer X, a Japanese-based company has recently announced the development of an electronic voting system based on a blockchain protocol as part of a wider “smart city“ project that is being pursued by Tsukuba city.

Located in Tokyo, the company has said that the new system will need to meet the technical needs of electronic voting and on top of this, it will include the prevention of double voting. Furthermore, voters will be able to check their own voting results as the company explained that through the new system, it is hoping to push for a shift towards electronic voting in local government.

The company is going to be joining the Tsukuba City, Ibaraki Prefecture smart council which is aiming to transform Tsukuba into a “smart city“ as previously mentioned and push it further into the digital age.

This comes off the back of the United States presidential election that took place earlier this month. Many Americans decided to mail in their vote for ease as well as to keep himself as safe as possible during the coronavirus pandemic.

The pandemic has encouraged many countries all over the world to develop blockchain-based voting systems. Russia, for example, has already started looking into the potential of Blockchain and how it would work in a voting system. They published at the source code for the platform on GitHub earlier this year.
