Blockchain Technologies Corp. to Secure Election for Libertarian Party of Texas 2016 Convention
Blockchain Technologies Corp. (BTC) has announced that it will be the sole provider of balloted election services to the the third largest political party in the state of Texas at the 2016 Libertarian Party of Texas State Convention which takes place in San Antonio on 8th – 10th April.
Four separate elections will be held: Candidates for Statewide Office, Candidates for Delegates to the Libertarian National Convention, Candidates for Statewide Officers, and the State Libertarian Executive Committee, which includes 60 positions and is voted on by region according to State Senate districts.
Using blockchain technology, BTC’s election system process provides an extra level of security from the immutability of the blockchain, making fraud virtually impossible. The voting process begins with paper ballots in order to avoid voter confusion about how to properly vote and ensure that there is an indisputable audit trail.
Once the votes are counted by BTC’s proprietary ballot scanning software, a snapshot of the election results are instantly uploaded to the blockchain as they are tabulated, allowing for a transparent, independently-verifiable audit trail that enhances and backs up the paper ballot records. BTC has filed a non-provisional utility patent titled ‘System and Method For Securely Receiving And Counting Votes In An Election’ – Application #14820530.
