At 10:00 am on 25 June, Mayor Dolfi Müller participated with his digital ID in the first blockchain-based consultative vote in the city of Zug and opened it. The vote includes two yes / no questions and one multi-answer question. Holders of a digital ID of the city of Zug can still vote until July 1, 2018.
Furthermore, the report added:
Various other e-voting systems are also being tested in other Swiss cantons. Unlike these systems, the process of tuning in the city of Zug does not take place via a single centralized server, but spread across a blockchain on many computers. This makes the e-voting system safer and less susceptible to unnoticed manipulation. Mayor Dolfi Müller was impressed after his vote: “With decentralized e-voting, data sovereignty and transparency are the highest for those voting because of their individual comprehensibility.”
