What can I build
You may use one or more of these example ideas to build your Azure Blockchain application. Don’t restrict yourself to just these examples if you have a different idea. Unleash your creativity as long as your prototype gets us closer to the goal of making the election process more secure, reliable, and transparent.
Example Idea 1
I live in a different location
A person may be living in a location other than the constituency where s/he is registered as a voter. Use Azure Blockchain to empower the citizens to vote online securely.
Example Idea 2
Name missing from Voter’s List
Use Azure Blockchain to ensure that no eligible voter is left out of the Voter’s List.
Example Idea 3
Applying for Voter’s ID
Could Azure Blockchain enable automatic creation of an e-Voter ID Card as soon as an Indian Citizen turns 18?
Example Idea 4
EVM Hacking accusation
Use Azure Blockchain to secure EVMs in a manner that such claims are rendered invalid.
Example Idea 5
Expedite Vote Counting
Use Azure Blockchain to expedite counting & tallying of votes. Rather than waiting for days, can the results be announced within seconds of Close of Poll?
Example Idea 6
Using Azure Blockchain, could you make an App that could potentially help a voter decide which candidate to vote for based on metrics like - Promises made vs. Promises Kept, Attendance in the House, Criminal Record, Fund Utilization, Questions asked in the House, Number of Debates participated in, etc.
The Judges will evaluate each criteria on a scale of 0 - 5. Take each criteria seriously.
Uniqueness of Solution
Do you have an impressive idea and/or a better approach than the ones already out there?
Feasibility of Solution
How practical is it to build your product? Could people in remote areas with limited or no internet connectivity use your product?
Creating a world-class project, or world-changing one, requires the ability to get others on board. Judges evaluate how good your demo was in terms of presentation, design, and content.
Maximum impact to successful outcomes
How scalable is your solution? How economical is it to implement your solution?
Judges evaluate the technical achievement the team has tackled during the competition.
Relevance to Theme
Stay as close to the problem statement as possible. Your prototype should take us closer to the goal of making the election process more secure, reliable, and transparent.
