Helios Voting System — Launched!

I just gave my talk at Usenix Security on Helios, my new web-based voting system that supports cryptographic auditing. Since it’s web-based, you don’t want to use this for elections where coercion is a serious concern. But if you’re running an online election for your club, software community, etc.., it’s perfect.

Just go to:

http://www.heliosvoting.org

Oh, and you need Firefox 3 for now (and for you Linux geeks, you also need the Java plugin.)

The source code is available at github under the GPL v3.

  2. I’d like to play with it, but every time I hit the “Create” button, it pops up an error box that says “Make sure you’ve entered correct start and end dates”. I can’t get past that page.

  4. Hi Eric,

    A few people have been getting that error, so I removed the start and end date fields for now since I’m not (yet) enforcing them anyways. Try it now!
