Tezos Blockchain (XTZ) in support of Local Democracy and Electronic Voting – Cryptocurrencies

On October 2, 2020, the city of Verneuil-sur-Seine announces in a press release, the possibility for the inhabitants to vote by internet from October 1 to 8. Voting takes place through the Avosvotes application based on Tezos (XTZ). The consultation concerns the bypass of the RD154 departmental road. A new era for electronic voting using blockchain?


When local democracy rhymes with disruptive technology

Verneuil-sur-Seine on October 2, 2020 – For more than 60 years, a bypass of the RD154 departmental road has been the subject of a project devised by several local elected officials.

The Departmental Council of Yvelines is now the prime contractor for this bypass project. However, the project has been the subject of debate for several decades. And for good reason: the departmental road RD 154 is a traffic axis which crosses the communes of Vernouillet and Verneuil-sur-Seine and allows the populations and activities of the agglomerations on the right bank of the Seine (Triel sur Seine and Meulan-en- Yvelines) to join the A13.

With this project, it is therefore a whole vision of the territory of the north of Yvelines that is at stake. It is in this context that the Mayors of Chapet, Vernouillet and Verneuil-sur-Seine are launching a consultation with the inhabitants to know their opinions and to share the result of the consultation with the Departmental Council of Yvelines. After a month of campaigning (public meetings, etc.) and communication, it is now time to vote … via blockchain!

As we know, the trend in the crypto industry and blockchain technologies is towards technological superlatives and big disruptive ambitions – usually very quickly out of breath. It is therefore difficult not to see in the type of experimentation carried out in Verneuil-sur-Seine, on the most local scale possible, the real areas of conquest for industry. As such, seeing what democracy comprises most essential (the citizen vote), at the smallest scale, facilitated and reinforced by the blockchain, is deeply encouraging for the future.
