- YOUNGO, SDG7 and the WGC are the UN organizations ready to adopt the Electis voting system
- Recently, there has been an increase in the number of organizations adopting Tezos’ electronic voting solution.
According to multiple reports, three United Nations organizations have adopted Tezos’ electronic voting solution, Electis. Since its creation, the popularity of Electis has continued to grow. Various organizations have embraced its use to organize fair and open-source elections. The most popular of these organizations are government agencies and non-profit organizations.
Transparency in the exercise of voting in these organizations is crucial as they make decisions regarding climate change, carbon footprints and other critical global issues. Different estimates show that more than 20,000 voters have used the Electis voting solution. The latest organizations to adopt the Electis voting system are three UN organizations.
The first is YOUNGO, the official children and youth arm of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The UNFCCC is an umbrella for children under 35. It is also the general body of youth NGOs who want the UNFCCC to hear the voice of young people.
Some of these youth NGOs are also studying and developing policies related to climate change. They vote to ensure that the UNFCCC has a well-defined long-term trajectory. The SDG7 Youth Constituency is another UN organization adopting the Electis voting system. The purpose of this organization is to give young people a voice in decisions and policies in the energy sector.
It should be noted that this organization is part of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) established by the UN seven years ago. Having witnessed the positive effect of the Electis voting system on ODD7 activities, an ODD7 member said that the voting system will be used for the organization’s elections this year and indeed for many other election years.
The Women And Gender Constituency (WGC) is the third United Nations organization to adopt Tezos’ electronic voting solution. The WGC is an umbrella organization of 28 non-governmental organizations (NGOs). It is primarily responsible for ensuring that women can realize their rights and priorities when they demand them.
Greater adoption of Tezos electronic voting system
Historically, there have often been questions about the transparency and accuracy of elections. However, the electronic voting solution built by Tezos (Electis) seeks to dispel all these doubts. The adoption of this voting system by these UN organizations increases the number of organizations using Electis from Tezos.
Last September, the French government tested Electis for use in the upcoming local elections. Additionally, Kings College London, Ritsumeikan University, Japan, and 78 other higher education institutions have tested and adopted Electris. Electis is a fully encrypted and anonymous electronic voting system.
The Electris has further enhanced the reputation and population of the Tezos blockchain. Other high profile Tezos projects and collaborations have not been as popular as the Electis. One of the biggest problems facing blockchain projections is building utilities. Often, this is the factor that determines whether a project will stand the test of time or fade quickly. The growing adoption of Electis and other Tezos blockchain projects would also have a positive impact on its native token.
