Utah to use blockchain for its voting system

Utah county blockchain

The Utah state in the United States of America has become the third jurisdiction to allow blockchain voting for its population.

The voting is going to completely mobile-based therefore allowing the participants to as many citizens in the county as possible.

The implementation of the blockchain will be facilitated by a joint effort from the National Cybersecurity Center, Voatz (a mobile voting platform) Tusk Philanthropies and the Utah Country Election Division.

The voting process is quite long, as it started as early as June 28th and will be finishing in the middle of August, more specifically on the 13th, right before the elections. The mobile platform is said to provide comfort for voters ranging from military personnel and their dependents, as well as citizens located in foreign countries.

Utah is not the first state to accept the blockchain in its voting system, it is actually the third, right after Colorado and West Virginia.

Many blockchain enthusiasts hope that the addition of the technology to as many counties as possible will introduce a new phase in the adoption of the blockchain across various sectors in the United States.

Considering the fact that the US is one of the largest markets in terms of cryptocurrency, having the judicial and legislative systems use the technology is going to ease future regulatory decisions in terms of crypto trading.
