In this talk, I’ll share the progress that we have made in the field of e-voting, including the proposal of a new paradigm of e-voting system called self-enforcing e-voting (SEEV). A SEEV system is End-to-End (E2E) verifiable, but it differs from all previous E2E systems in that it does not require tallying authorities. The removal of tallying authorities significantly simplifies the election management and makes the system much more practical than before. A prototype of a SEEV system based on the DRE-i protocol (Hao et al. USENIX JETS 2014) has been built and used regularly in Newcastle University for classroom voting and student prize competitions with very positive student feedback. Lessons from our experience of designing, analysing and deploying an e-voting system for real-world applications are also presented.
