Votem – voting for a mobile world

Votem is pleased to introduce the VAST Token, the only token that will enable citizens around the world to easily vote online and from their mobile devices with an unprecedented level of verifiability, accessibility, security, and transparency. Founded in 2014, Votem is on a full out offensive in order to change the way they vote and believes that mobile voting will create positive change in the world by bringing modern voting to the world. Votem’s Mobile Voting Platform powered the largest blockchain-based digital vote to date.The VAST Token and related CastIron Platform enables citizens, organizations, and governments around the world to easily manage or participate in online voting with the highest possible level of verifiability, accessibility, security, and transparency. The VAST Token and related Platform improves the efficacy of voting by ensuring the integrity of the voting process, the confidentiality of the voters’ choices, and validity of the results – for both private and public-sector elections.

VAST Token

The VAST Token is an EIP-20 compliant digital token issued by Votem Corp. and is named after the four critical elements of a voting system (Verifiability, Accessibility, Security, Transparency). These tokens will allow an individual or organization secure access to the CastIron platform and its features to successfully operate elections and ancillary activities.

CastIron Platform

Their mobile voting platform, CastIron, provides the application functionality for running elections. It combines
advanced mobile capabilities and a private blockchain framework, with public sidechains for additional verification, using voter anonymizing technological schemas and mathematical proofs of verifiability, all enabled by VAST Tokens.

Security

Security is arguably the greatest risk for any elections system. It represents the integrity of the vote, the confidentiality of the voters’ choices, and the sanctity of the most fundamentally democratic basis for decision making. Allegations of hacking rocked the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election and persist with increased fears of tampering by foreign state actors. Votem’s Platform guarantees that Cast Vote Records are completely immune to alteration.

Accessibility

The U.S. Census Bureau surveyed 47,593,000 Americans on why they did not vote in 2014 and 53% of respondents
stated their “inability to make it to the polls” as the primary reason. Several other national surveys, including one they conducted in the summer of 2016, were consistent with these results. Votem is guided by the dynamics of the voting public they serve including seniors whose needs include accessibility and readability of materials; people with disabilities who have a reasonable expectation of fair and respectful service that enables a private, independent, and
secure voting experience; busy professionals who seek options for voting that match their mobile lifestyles; citizens with an array of cultural and ethnic backgrounds who depend on language accessibility and voter assistance; …and
future voters whose needs may include things not yet considered.

Votem’s Comprehensive Solution

Votem positions itself between the tech-savvy blockchain entrepreneurs who don’t understand the intricacies of running elections and the traditional election systems manufacturers who rely heavily on traditional voting methods. Their approach is rooted in a deep understanding of both voter behavior and the demands of election officials and
legislators. There are 4  key components of their solution, which VAST Token Holders get to take
advantage of, which includes the following:

  • CastIron Mobile Voting Platform
    This is the application layer that provides the Election Management System (EMS) and related functionality to
    support online elections.
  • “Proof of Vote” Protocol
    This openly vetted protocol provides the detailed method for conducting end-to-end verifiable elections using distributed ledger technology.
  • VAST Token
    The Token provides role-based access to the CastIron software platform.
  • Blockchain
    Their protocol and application run on a private blockchain framework, with public sidechains for additional verification, creating auditable vote records that can be validated in real time.
