Abstract: Building an online voting system that satisfies the legal requirements of legislators has been a challenging task for a long time. The exciting technology with respect to the same is the Distributed Ledger technologies. Block chain is one such technology that offers an infinite range of applications. In this paper, block chain technology is used as a service to implement distributed online voting system by identifying the legal and technological limitations of using block chain as a service. A novel online voting system has been proposed that addresses all the limitations discovered. The paper evaluates the potential of distributed ledger technologies such as the process of election and implementing a block chain-based application. As a result, the security is improved and the cost of hosting a nation-wide election is drastically reduced.
