The Secure Electronic Voting System using Blockchain Technology is ensured to make the current voting process to take place in an honest, accurate and highly secure way. This system stores the details of the voters and votes in two separate blockchains, which provides transparency into election results by allowing voters to independently audit the ballot box while protecting each voter's right to privacy. All the details of the voters get stored into one Blockchain, and this guarantees greater security by providing a PIN confirmed before the vote is taken into consideration. By casting votes as transactions, we can create another blockchain which keeps track of the tallies of the votes. This way, everyone can count the votes themselves, they can verify that no votes were changed or removed, and no illegitimate votes were added and as a result, is made public everyone can agree upon the final count. This system is only taking the current process of voting in an election and bringing that process entirely online, in an attempt to make it highly secure and also more accessible by allowing the voter to vote at his/her location and also reducing the effort put by staff members.
