Cardano Founder Advocates Blockchain for Election Integrity

Cardano’s founder, Charles Hoskinson, recently claimed that blockchain technology can enhance voters’ trust in the election outcomes while denouncing electronic voting systems. Hoskinson proposed a dual system where blockchain and paper ballots audit each other to ensure transparency and accuracy in vote counting.

Presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. recently pointed out numerous irregularities in Puerto Rico’s primary elections, which were identified thanks to a paper trail. The president suggested that paper ballots should be used to have a correct count and avoid electronic manipulation. He urged for a system that would ensure all the votes are counted correctly.

Blockchain technology, as highlighted by Hoskinson, offers a secure and transparent method for recording votes. Blockchain systems like Cardano, Ethereum, and Solana are designed to prevent manipulation and allow public verification of stored information. Integrating blockchain with paper ballots could create a robust system where the digital and analog methods audit each other.

Puerto Rico’s elections commission is currently reviewing its contract with Dominion Voting Systems after software issues caused a mismatch in vote counts during the primaries leading to inaccurate machine-reported results, that were corrected using paper backups.
