Electis is kicking off a world-wide university voting experiment powered by the Tezos network

But the political system itself is very slow adapting to new technological solutions, which is especially visible when it comes to voting. In most countries, elections are still held in the same way they have been for hundreds of years, with pen and paper, in a voting booth and centrally organized from the local authorities.

Why we are developing and testing blockchain voting with universities?

The core of participating universities is already mobilized and ready to jump into the first phase of the project. Electis is inviting more universities to get on board for the initial proof-of-concept vote, which is to be held in autumn 2020.
