Revolutionizing elections with
the Polys electronic voting system

The complete solution for your elections

We develop software and electronic voting equipment to solve your election problems fast.
Blockchain-based cloud solution
Thanks to its decentralized structure, a blockchain is an ideal system for online voting. It guarantees voting remains immutable and cannot be rigged or deleted.
Voting machines
Our machines operate in a single blockchain network. That means all votes —whether they are cast via terminals at polling stations or from personal devices — are securely transmitted and processed together.
Service and maintenance
We provide you with technical support at every stage of your election and guide you through the use of the voting machines.

What makes
our approach different?

We created our solution to simplify the voting process, reduce organizational costs, increase turnout and ensure the legitimacy of the results. We also added functionality that allows online monitoring so independent observers can supervise the voting process.

Make your elections more efficient with Polys

Cut out paper ballots
Voting terminals eliminate the need to prepare paper ballots for election commission members. In addition, all votes are automatically counted and decrypted by the system, significantly reducing staff costs and maintenance of polling stations.
Allow voters to participate in countrywide elections
A member of the election commission issues a voter a ticket with a unique QR code to access the voting. The Polys Activator associates the QR access code with the required election, for example, regional. Voters can therefore vote in regional elections from any polling station in their country.
Print voting results from blockchain
To confirm the authenticity of the vote, we have developed special Polys Printers that can be placed at regional polling stations. They are connected to a single blockchain network and print out the necessary election protocols and results.

FAQ about Polys voting machines

There are other types of electronic voting machines. How does your solution differ from them?
This is the first voting machine to implement Blockchain in this class of devices to eliminate the possibility of vote rigging. It is believed that despite the vulnerabilities in electronic voting machines, they are hard to exploit, as they are not connected to the internet. However, that's not completely true. The voting results are transmitted to the servers of the election commission through SIM cards built into the voting machines. Although the machines are not connected to the internet, they do use radio signals to send data to cell towers and routers owned by telecom operators. Even when stationary modems are installed in the voting machines, where the connection is via telephone lines, data still goes to the cellular routers, because telecom providers have replaced most of their communication equipment with digital systems. Because of this, intruders can penetrate the data transfer channel and intercept preliminary results if the data is not encrypted, install malware, interfere in vote transmission and replace votes among other things.

Where is all the voting data from Polys Voting Machines processed and stored?
Data isn't stored on the voting machine or a dedicated computer but spread throughout the servers installed in third-party observers and trusted organizations. This means that the hacking of servers to delete or change voting results isn't worthwhile, as several observers have access to a complete copy of the data.
Сan cybercriminals hack Polys voting terminals to manipulate votes?
There is always the potential for general cybersecurity risks apply to any procedure carried out online. However, we have introduced a number of measures to mitigate the consequences of any potential cyber-intervention. Polys voting terminals are protected from situations where data is transmitted to any unreliable third party. All validating nodes of the blockchain network have their own pair of keys for signing the transaction. When a transaction (vote) is submitted to the blockchain, all validating nodes record this and stamp their signature. After that, the Polys voting terminal receives a response from the blockchain that the transaction is accepted, it checks all these signatures to confirm that transaction has been transmitted into the correct blockchain network.
    Can hackers somehow intercept and alter votes when they are being transmitted from the voting machine to the servers of trusted organizations?
    Theoretically, they can intercept the transaction (vote). However, even if malefactors intercept votes, they cannot alter them. All validating nodes of the blockchain network have their own pair of keys for signing the transaction. When a transaction is submitted to the blockchain, all validating nodes record this and stamp their signature. After that Polys voting machine receives a response from the blockchain that the transaction is accepted, it checks all these signatures. So, if a malefactor changes something in the transaction, the signature will cease to be valid and the transaction will not be accepted.
    What happens with the votes if the internet connection on a polling station is broken?
    When a transaction (vote) is created on Polys Voting Machine it is signed by a pair of keys. If the network connection at the polling station breaks down, the voting machine cannot sign the transaction (vote) with its own key, meaning it cannot be stored in the blockchain. An error message about this issue will appear on the voting machine screen. The voter will not be able to cast his or her vote until the internet connection is restored.
    Are there any limitations to the number of votes?
    There are some limitations, as, due to the nature of blockchain, large numbers of votes slow down transaction processing. To resolve this, we offer customers the ability to divide a large blockchain network into sub-blockchains (each to store a certain number of transactions) for better scalability.
    How can we guarantee that people will not vote twice – from polling stations and personal devices?
    Polys voting machines and the Polys online platform share a single database of voters. So, if a citizen casts his or her vote at a polling station, the system will not allow them to also vote remotely, and vice versa.
    Do you also develop the hardware part of the solution for your customers?
    We are responsible for the concept, design and software part of the devices. To produce Polys Voting Machines and their components, we work with our partners and subcontractors and are able to work with our customer's chosen third-parties for more transparency and trust to our solution.
    If I wanted to buy the solution, can I buy everything as a package from Polys?
    Yes, you can purchase everything as a package by reaching out to request a quote.
    How much does the solution cost?
    The total price depends on many factors, including the expected voter turnout, desired scope and number of devices, election format (e.g. on polling stations, remote or combined both options) and logistic matters.
