Mixing (Mix)

Mixing

Breaking the tie between a voter and their vote.

In order to separate a voter’s identity from their vote, ballots undergo a mixing process before decryption. Mixing takes place in a mix-net (mix network), a series of servers which take in multiple messages and send them out re-encrypted and in a random order.

Online ballots are first stripped of any information tying them to a voter and are then shuffled and re-encrypted multiple times. The result is an entirely random list of votes that can in no way be tied back to the individual voters who sent them.
