VotingApp

I’m currently the Senior Android Engineer at Vidaloop, Inc. working on VotingApp.

Vote securely from your smartphone using VotingApp. VotingApp is more convenient and accessible, but just as safe and private as voting in-person at the polls. With VotingApp, Elections can finally be:


Transparent

The source code and internal processes will be made available for review. This means independent code, security, and accessibility tests are not only conducted but encouraged.

Observers can view all election activity remotely from initial election setup, to voting, to tally operations, through election certification. Individual voter information is not revealed and submitted votes are encrypted until live voting has ended.

Verifiable

VotingApp provides End-to-End Verifiability, giving voters the ability to verify that their vote is:

  • Cast as Intended: Their votes accurately reflect their selections.
  • Recorded as Cast: There stored vote is the same as their cast vote.
  • Tallied as Recorded: Their stored vote is properly counted.

Secure

VotingApp provides the highest level of security and voter verification available. A voter authenticates using a unique set of credentials selected by the jurisdiction, combined with their device’s biometric capabilities.

To complete authentication the voter uses a physical token provided by the jurisdiction. A voter does not have access to their ballot and cannot submit a vote until all authentication steps are complete.

With VotingApp, the election is:

  • Immutable (Unchangeable)
  • Reviewable in real-time
  • Accessible to all observers
  • Verifiable by all

Remote observation of the election allows you to create a safe and secure environment for your workers without compromising public confidence in the election.

Accessible

Voters can vote remotely, accessibly and securely using VotingApp on their iOS or Android phones and tablets.

Voters with disabilities can vote using the native iOS and Android accessibility tools and screen readers, or they can use VotingApp’s enhanced accessible capabilities including:

  • text resizing,
  • contrast rates,
  • and our built-in multilingual audio ballot.

VotingApp is also tested to work with a variety of external accessibility devices such as sip and puff devices and refreshable braille displays.

Voters submit their ballot remotely without having to worry about mail deadlines or the inaccessibility of printing and signing paper returns.

Integrative

Optimal for piloting, VotingApp works with your existing Election Management System—this means that you can import your existing election information into our intuitive Admin Portal, or you can create an election from scratch.

Voter Information can also be imported from your existing Voter Registration Database. You can add your entire voting population to the Admin Portal or simply limit it to a certain group of voters (such as UOCAVA voters).

Once the election is finished, the information gets decrypted and you can tally the votes and create reports using our Admin Portal, or you can print out marked ballots which can be scanned into your existing Election Management System.
