Note unusual day

In November 2014 the world’s first use of an end-to-end verifiable voting system in a State election took place in the State of Victoria, Australia. A team from the University of Surrey led the development of the verifiability back-end. The core of the system design was the Pret a Voter verifiable voting scheme originally proposed in 2005, but its implementation required a number of significant enhancements, elaborations and new protocols in order to make it workable in practice and meet the election’s specific needs, while maintaining the key property of verifiability. In this talk I will describe the development of the system from a proposal in an academic paper through to a production system, and explain the new elements that needed to be introduced. I will also report on the use of the system in the November 2014 State of Victoria election.
