I would like to propose that we evaluate voting as a blockchain application
possibility.

In the same way the blockchain is used in Bitcoin to prevent double
spending, it could be used to prevent double voting.

There are a few issues which need to be resolved,including:


   1. voter registration and credential assignment (at the worst, it could
   follow the same process used today)
   2. supporting voter's recovery of forgotton credentials
   3. protecting the re-identification of a voter's identity
