BLACKSBURG, Va., April 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Follow My Vote has launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund the voting platform of the future, powered by blockchain technology. The project aims to bring transparency, convenience, and security to elections and polls of all kinds.
"The future of government is in open-source technologies and providing transparent election results will aid to restoring faith in vote counting. I support efforts, like those used by Follow My Vote, that explore how open-source software can lead to greater transparency, integrity and participation in voting."
- Kammi Foote, Inyo County (CA) Registrar of Voters (U.S.)
Voting today is filled with accusations of illegitimacy. This is mostly due to the current systems and methods in use, which can be extremely vulnerable.
Follow My Vote is solving this voting crisis with innovative technologies. A voting platform that can gain transparency into elections, without compromising voter privacy, will ensure that election results are accurate. Follow My Vote is accomplishing this by using blockchain technology and elliptic curve cryptography to build an open-source platform that is secure and truly verifiable from end to end.
The funds raised from their Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign will go towards completion of the project and demonstrating the power of blockchain voting to the world.
"I have poured my life savings into Follow My Vote. When that wasn't enough, I cashed out my 401K and maxed out my credit cards. We are so close to making history, I can feel it in my bones. I am confident that my fellow Millennials will find it in their hearts to fund this campaign, so that we can get the job done."
- Adam Kaleb Ernest, Co-founder and CEO at Follow My Vote
Follow My Vote plans to demonstrate their game-changing technology by hosting an election in parallel to the United States 2016 Presidential Election.
