There has been widespread adoption of a Tezos-based e-voting solution, dubbed Electis.

In a recent announcement, three United Nations organizations are the latest to adopt the Tezos e-voting solution. 

List of UN Organizations That Adopted Electis

YOUNGO, the official children and youth constituency of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) was the first UN organization to adopt the Tezos e-voting solution. 

The organization consists of a network of children below 35 years and other youth NGOs committed to ensuring youth voices are heard by the UNFCCC.  

Another United Nations organization that adopted the Tezos electronic voting solution is SDG7 Youth Constituency. The organization was launched to enable youth globally to have their voices heard in the energy sector. 

It is noteworthy that SDG7 is among the 17 Sustainable Development Goals created by the United Nations in 2015. 

The Tezos’ e-voting solution has contributed positively to the affairs of the SDG7, which prompted comments from a member of the organization:

“Electis is our trusted partner for this year’s election campaign – and hopefully for all future elections.”

Lastly, the Electis voting solution has also been tapped by the Women and Gender Constituency (WGC). The organization comprises 28 NGOs focused on ensuring women’s voices are heard in demand for the realization of their rights and priorities. 

Widespread Adoption of Electis

The adoption of Tezos’ Electis by these UN organizations further suggests the growing number of institutions that trust the blockchain. 

In September 2021, French authorities used Electis as an e-voting program, in a move that would see the solution used in local elections. 

Similarly, Electis has also been tested and adopted in 80 tertiary institutions, including Japan’s Ritsumeikan University and Kings College London. 

Electis is a voting solution that provides an encrypted and anonymous electronic voting system based on the Tezos blockchain
