The state of West Virginia is all set to introduce an innovative new voting app that is designed to make use of the security and ease of blockchain technology to make it possible for absentee voters to get their vote in.

Designed with military personnel in mind, this voting app is being trialed as part of a collaboration between West Virginia state authorities and voting tech start-up Voatz. While the current plan is to offer the voting app to citizens hailing from Harrison and Monongolia counties, the long-term goal is to expand the offering to all 55 state counties.

Not only is this voting app easy to use, but it also uses impenetrable blockchain technology to guarantee security, ensuring that the democratic process can go on unhindered and that military personnel aren't denied the right to vote because they're stationed overseas.
