Organization of an electronic vote
What happens once the memorandum of understanding is signed between my organization and the teams of Le Vote?
The person in charge of organizing the polling connects to the web interface developed by Orange. He or she accesses a back office to configure the poll: the title of the polling, the question asked to the citizens, the possible answers, the context of the poll, the date of the beginning and the end of the operation.
Voters are instantly notified that a new poll is available via the Le Vote mobile application which they will have downloaded beforehand. Thereby, they can vote online; at any time and anywhere!
What is the customer journey for the voter?
The voter downloads the app and identifies himself/herself by scanning his or her ID or passport. This process guarantees the unicity, integrity and confidentiality of the vote. Once a poll is available, the voter is notified directly on the app.
He can follow the evolution of the poll (number of votes) and receive the results. After his/her vote, each voter can leave an opinion.
When are the results available?
Like in a “classic” vote, results are available once the poll is over.
What are the advantages of electronic voting?
Our voting solution simplifies the organization of polls and is part of a CSR approach. In addition, the participation rate is often higher because voters can vote anywhere at any time. Finally, you generate significant savings related to dematerialization.
How can we inform voters on the first poll?
In order to have your voters know and download the application. You can communicate through:
- Social networks
- Advertisment display (banners, flyers…)
Can foreigners use the app?
Our application is available worldwide in french and english. To identify himself/herself, the user needs a valid passport or french ID card.
Security and Transparency
How is le Vote made secure?
Le Vote is secured through Blockchain technology.
This cutting-edge technology allows our clients to create online pollings which processes are completly decentralized and respect the principle of anonymity.
What is Blockchain technolgy?
Blockchain is “an open, distributed ledger that can record transactions between two parties efficiently and in a verifiable and permanent way” (Harvard Business Review)
This transparent and secure by design technology is decentralized and functions without central control body. (definition of Blockchain France)
What is the point of using a blockchain?
The strength of the concept lies in the decentralization of data and certification of information. Consensus is distributed. Blockchain is not an organization, or a legal or physical person who certifies the information, but the network, thanks to a forced protocol. Therefore, the information is randomly validated by a multitude of points that make up the network.
In addition, by publishing the results of the ballots on the Blockchain, we wanted to bring transparency and give polls an unfalsifiable and immutable character. Our vision is, to guarantee on Le Vote, a cybersecurity on a very large scale.
What is the security of my personal data?
Our website and application are GDPR compliant. No personal data is stored on our servers. The votes are kept (this is one of the benefits of the service) but anonymized.
All data is stored in France on Orange infrastructures.
