As a report from Bangkok Post on Thursday revealed, the Thailand National Electronics and Computer Technology Center (NECTEC) which is a unit of the Ministry of Science and Technology, already completed the development of the system for blockchain-based voting and is now looking for trial partners.
In the report, the head of the cybersecurity lab at NECTEC said:
“Nectec developed blockchain technology for e-voting that can be applied to national, provincial or community elections, as well as business votes such as the board of directors. The goal is to reduce fraud and maintain data integrity.”
Currently, the agency is prepared to test the blockchain system on a smaller scale. The start is expected to be with elections in universities, provinces as well as communities.
Right now, more partners are needed for large-scale implementation and general elections. However, the head of cybersecurity also noted that it requires more time as “every voter needs to have an affordable mobile internet connection and identity verification.”
This is not the first attempt on blockchain tech for elections voting. In August, the Japanese city Tsukuba tested a blockchain-based system that allows residents to cast votes on local development programs. The US state of West Virginia was also in the news for rolling a similar system for the 2018 midterm elections.
