Using online voting tools in America is a very controversial and hot topic and has been for about the past 20 years. IWannaVote tackles this issue head-on by looking into the viability of using online tools to conduct voting in secure and accessible ways. IWannaVote is a web-based .NET Core application that uses modern tools to publicly host polls that can be conducted as secure, or more secure in some cases, than current voting systems – both public and private. Through work and research, we have built a tool that can be used by anyone to run a poll and get results they can trust and have confidence all of their users will be able to use it while costing a fraction of current systems. This means that with an upgrade of current voting systems the state can both save money and increase accessibility all in one move.
