Abstract

In this paper we revisit Pretty Good Democracy, a scheme for verifiable Internet voting from untrusted client machines. The original scheme was designed for first-past-the-post elections. Here, we show how Pretty Good Democracy can be extended to voting schemes in which the voter lists the candidates in their order of preference. Our scheme applies to elections using STV, IRV, Borda, or any other tallying scheme in which a vote is a list of candidates in preference order. We also describe an extension to cover Approval or Range voting.
