Voting is a formal expression of one’s choice. Though the process is simple, it has far-reaching and deep-lying impacts. Through a vote, people get a channel to voice their opinion anonymously. There are issues with the orthodox traditional voting system, which is used across the world today. Studies, presented throughout the paper, would highlight how millions of people have missed out on voicing their opinion, or get proper representation, due to the many short-comings of the dated traditional voting systems. Blockchain is a comparatively new technology. There have been advances and research made to make use of blockchains in the world of finance and ledger management. But precious little has been done to tackle simpler but wider-reaching problems of voting. The novel approach suggested here would give the voters a chance to vote from the comfort of their homes, or, without adjusting their busy everyday schedules, and make sure everyone gets a proper representation as well. A combination of blockchain technology and fuzzy logic has been used here, to achieve a solution, that we think would help modernize the voting system and ensure greater satisfaction among the voters that their views have been represented in one way or the other. Using this novel approach, we believe that more people would be encouraged to vote and a greater number of voices would get proper representation.
