An Anonymous and Tracable Online Voting System
VVVote is an online voting system which provides the following features:
- The votes are anonymous. That means, no one can find out which vote came from which voter - except the voter himself. Even the admin of the voting server cannot do this matching.
- The whole process is transparent: every voter can verify that: (a) all votes are unchanged, (b) his vote is counted, (c) only votes from entitled users are accepted.
The system does not provide secrecy in the following meaning: It cannot ensure that no one looks over the voter's shoulder when voting. And that there is a way for a voter to prove how he decided to vote.
