How can the United States expand voting rights to its citizens while increasing security and transparency?
Building a new generation of American democracy
BallotCast is a distributed digital election platform that is verifiable, user-friendly, and secure. It expands voting access to hourly-wage workers, citizens with reduced mobility, and anyone who can’t make it to the polls. Americans can trust that every election has been held fairly and with the input of as many citizens as possible.
The biggest question
Could this actually work? Perhaps. We have the tools we need to create such a system— convincing people that it is legitimate, secure, and private is another story. Convincing legislators and taxpayers to invest the money in its development and implementation will be an even higher hurdle to clear. Achieving a vision that treats every citizen as an equal, an individual endowed with the natural-born right to choose those who will lead her people feels nearly impossible.
