In a democratic country, voting is one of the most important activity. In many democracies over the years, there has been decrease in the number of voters coming for election because of the inconvenient voting system. An electronic voting scheme allows voters to vote securely from distance through internet by interacting with a set of authorities. However there is always a chance that an adversary can corrupt the users and jeopardize the voting system. In this paper, we have proposed an E-voting protocol that ensures the three most important requirements of E-voting system i. e privacy, verifiability and fairness even in case when some of the users are malicious.
