On a House Joint Resolution by patron Hala Ayala that was prefiled on 27th of December last year and scheduled for offering today, 8th January 2020, the Department of Elections (DOE) is requested to study the use of blockchain technology to protect voter records and election results.

The bill stated that the records of 5 million voters registered in the Commonwealth and the entire Virginia Election and Registration Information System should be in the responsibility of the DOE, where the goal would be to promote and support accurate, fair, open, and secure elections for the citizens of the Commonwealth.

“In conducting its study, the DOE shall:
1. Determine the kinds of blockchain technology that could be used to secure voter records and election results
2. Determine the costs and benefits of using such technology as compared to traditional registration and election security measures
3. Make recommendations on whether and how to implement blockchain technology in practices affecting the security of voter records and election results.
