Abstract

The primary target of the democracy is “vote” by which the general population can choose the possibility for shaping a proficient government to fulfill their requirements and demands with the end goal that their standard living can be improved. The significance of casting a ballot is lost among the rushing about of city life ([TechCrunch in Liquid democracy uses blockchain to fix politics, and now you can vote for it. [1]). The election commission follows manual voting mechanism which is done by electronic voting machine. This machine is set in the poll booths and is observed by higher authorities. Because of some unlawful exercises, the booths are abused and individuals’ vote to right has been denied in many parts of the country. Our principle point of the proposed framework is to build up a perfect system with high-security Aadhaar-based login system together with the immutable machine (blockchain) which has proven its mettle in various other applications till date. The proposed framework is fundamentally intended for our nation.
