New York Libertarian Party Uses Blockchain Voting Technology
Blockchain Technologies Corp. was selected by the New York Libertarian Party to provide balloted-election services during its recent 2016 state convention. The event took place on 30th April and covered election of officers, members of State Committee and delegates to National Convention, nomination of US Senate candidate, and approval of proposed by-law amendments. BTC also provided similar services recently in San Antonio, Texas for the Libertarian Party of Texas’ 2016 State Convention.
Blockchain technology has been chosen due to its ability to create a publicly viewable, time-stamped, signed record that is permanent and immutable. Every piece of election data is permanently recorded on a public blockchain database, eliminating the risk of human error, fraud or alteration.
LPTexas Convention Chairman, Kurt Hildebrand remarked: “I was very impressed with Blockchain Technologies Corp.’s services and greatly appreciated how much they went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure the success of our elections and our convention.”
Nick Spanos, CEO of Blockchain Technologies Corp, commented: “Recent headlines show problems during the presidential primaries – voting machines not working on election day, allegations of fraud, and registered voters being turned away from the polls. As the world’s premier democracy, the US must set an example for others to follow. BTC is bringing trust, transparency, and efficiency to elections, and thereby restoring faith in democracy and increased voter enfranchisement.”
