The South Australian Government has signed a contract with Horizon State, a blockchain solutions provider, to assist the government in conducting technology-powered election. The New-Zealand based company, as stated, will provide technology and support for the voting process.
Nimo Naamani, CEO of the tech company, has expressed his excitement on the government’s decision to switch to technology based voting system. He has also said that the use of blockchain for elections is an excellent way to authenticate the potentials of the platform.
According to Tim Whetstone, the Minister for Primary Industries, blockchain is a highly secure and transparent platform that is being used all over the world for various transactions, and this is the first time that the South Australian government will be conducting its election based on blockchain. He has revealed that the blockchain voting technology has already been integrated with the state’s online polling website.
