Yes! Your ballot, once cast is encrypted and stored in our electronic ballot box – no one can see it - and it can not be withdrawn, changed or otherwise tampered with. When the voting event concludes the ballot results are communicated in the aggregate to the electoral/ratification officer for final tabulation purposes. At no time is your electronic ballot ever linked to you directly – again, our designs mimic exactly what happens at a physical polling station. Once your ballot goes in the ballot box it can not be pulled out and no ballot cast can be linked back to any specific voter.
In the event of an audit or appeal – we are able to demonstrate through your digital foot-print and our authentication and verification procedures that you cast your ballot electronically, and that all ballots cast electronically are properly accounted for, just like at a physical polling station.
