The state authorities of West Virginia made mobile voting application available on blockchain in all 55 districts of the region. This will allow absent voters who serve in the army to remotely vote in midterm elections.
In this spring , as part of the elections to the West Virginia Senate, military personnel and their families took part in the pilot draft of mobile detachment voting.
Since testing has been successful, state authorities plan to extend the concept in all 55 districts of the region in the general election in November 2018, said Mac Warner, Secretary of State of West Virginia. However, so far there is no information that the decision was made.
As CNN reported on Monday, after the pilot phase, a round of four inspections of the infrastructure of the blockchain-application was completed and “no problems were identified”.
