‘Follow My Vote’ Launches Kickstarter Campaign for Revolutionizing Open-source Blockchain Voting Software

Follow My Vote has launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise funds for the development of a verifiable open-source blockchain voting software, making voting honest and convenient, once and for all.

Follow My Votehas launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund the blockchain technology powered voting platform of the future. The project aims to bring transparency, convenience and security to all kinds of polls and electoral procedures.

“The future of government is in open-source technologies and providing transparent election results will aid to restoring faith in vote counting. I support efforts, like those used by Follow My Vote, that explore how open-source software can lead to greater transparency, integrity and participation in voting.”

Says Kammi Foote, Registrar of Voters (U.S.) at Inyo County (CA).

Voting today is filled with accusations of illegitimacy. This is mostly due to the current systems and methods in use, which can be extremely vulnerable to manipulation.

Follow My Vote is solving this voting crisis with innovative technologies.

The company is working on a voting platform that can introduce more transparency into the elections without compromising voter privacy while ensuring the accuracy of the election results. Follow My Vote is accomplishing this by using blockchain technology and elliptic curve cryptography to build an open-source platform that is secure and truly verifiable from end to end.

The funds raised from the Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign will go towards the completion of the project and demonstration of the power of blockchain voting to the world.

“I have poured my life savings into Follow My Vote. When that wasn’t enough, I cashed out my 401K and maxed out my credit cards. We are so close to making history, I can feel it in my bones. I am confident that my fellow Millennials will find it in their hearts to fund this campaign so that we can get the job done.”

Says Adam Kaleb Ernest, the Co-founder, and CEO at Follow My Vote.

Those interested in funding the Follow My Vote’s initiative can do so at the following link to the Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign.

Follow My Vote plans to demonstrate their game-changing technology by hosting an election in parallel to the United States 2016 Presidential Election.
