As technology continues to revolutionize various sectors, the potential of blockchain in transforming the democratic process is undeniable. With its inherent attributes of transparency, immutability, and decentralization, blockchain has the capacity to enhance the integrity and trustworthiness of elections and voting systems worldwide.

However, we believe that the most effective standards emerge through collective collaboration and input from experts and stakeholders like you.

This is an open invitation to all professionals, policymakers, academics, technologists, and enthusiasts in the fields of blockchain and governance to join forces with us. Your insights, critiques, and perspectives are essential in ensuring the standard is robust, adaptable, and addresses the diverse challenges faced by election systems globally.
