Our aim is to put the power into the hands of the people to determine the course our government must take. To do that, the people must have an easy and fast way to make their will known to our elected representatives. We can achieve this through electronic voting in referendums and plebiscites.
With the growth of the Blockchain we are developing an electronic voting system to work on the blockchain that will protect voters from electoral fraud and scammers. This voting system will be available on the internet to all mobile and desktop users.
The associated website, OzReferenda, will give all voters in Australia access to download and manage their Blockchain voting app.
We expect to have a prototype available to demonstrate in the first quarter of 2018.
The system will detect any attempt at a duplicate log in and send a message to the person or persons trying to log in unsuccessfully to report to their local Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) office to have their identity verified.
Non Electronic Voting
Not all Australians have access to digital or electronic devices. Therefore, local post offices will provide voting forms that can be collected, voted on, and mailed into the local AEC office.
Current governments point to the huge cost of implementing an electronic voting system as an excuse for not implementing one.
An electronic voting system would cost very little to implement, because our leader, Mike Holt, has over 40 years experience in the IT business. He believes we could implement an electronic voting system for less than $100,000. Compare this estimate to the ridiculous hundreds of millions of dollars the Australian governments, both ALP and LIB, have quoted us in an attempt to dissuade us from wanting a secure, online voting system.
The reason we are proposing that an independent body like Advance Australia manage the e-voting system is because the government and its agency the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) have demonstrated they are incapable of managing even a simple electronic voting system, let alone a sophisticated and secure one like we are developing.
We also believe that government should govern, not get involved in matters it is not qualified to dabble in.
