Abstract

The term end-to-end verifiability has been used over the past several years to describe multiple voting system proposals. The term has, however, never been formally defined. As a result, its meaning tends to change from voting system to voting system. We propose a definition for end-to-end verifiability of public elections based on performance requirements, as opposed to design requirements. We suggest a set of properties that collectively define the term. The properties help detect some of the possible problems that may influence the integrity of the election outcome.
