Several countries suffer under election systems which can be easily manipulated. Nevertheless, mobile internet access is widespread even in those countries. Fair Election System is an idea to establish a secure online voting system based on the blockchain. Online voting systems have to fulfil several requirements. Amongst these are anonymous voting and protection against manipulation e.g. preventing multiple voting. Additionally, data transfer over the internet has to be secured. The election and the voting itself, has to be free from tampering while still being transparent. In our blockchain model a decentralized network is used to avoid single point of failure and to ensure availability, integrity and security of the online voting system.
