Abstract: Electioneering processes can be much more convenient by the introduction of Electronic Voting Systems (EVS). However, there are some lacunas associated with EVS, for instance, if a blank vote is signed into the server before voters cast their votes, it results into multi-voting. In addition to that, if users cast their votes before signing into the server, the information of the election could have leaked out from the server and the election would have been compromised. So, we introduced Blind signatures to help prevent leakage of the election information through the server. However, hackers may try to bring in a non-candidate signature for non-legal usage at that moment or in a later time. For these issues to be addressed, this research suggests a novel work, oblivious signature scheme with proxy signature to meet security requirements that includes; message verification, information protection, and personal privacy, in order to ensure that rigging is drastically reduced between voters, candidates and the system (the server). That is why, an EVS that uses a combination of blind signature, oblivious signature and proxy signature scheme is proposed and we have also implemented this scheme electronically to show that users can vote conveniently and securely.
