1. Voting Overview

 Blockchain technology lends itself well to use in voting systems. By providing a secure way for 
 each person to register their vote on a public record whilst still maintaining the option for users 
 to remain anonymous, and with little possibility for anybody to tamper with those votes, the 
 blockchain is able to offer significant improvements over current systems in terms of security and 
 transparency. The secure, encrypted, consensus-based nature of the XIN network allows the 
 implementation of a voting system that guarantees anonymity and security, without relying on a 
 central authority to tally votes.The XIN Voting System enables any account to create a poll with 
 one question and up to 10 answers. Accounts are eligible to vote in the poll based on a minimum 
 required balance of XIN, an asset or a currency. Voting consists of selecting an integer range 
 value to associate with one or more answers as specified during poll creation. An answer is given 
 weight based on one of four voting models and then its weight is multiplied by the associated 
 range value to compute a corresponding result. The four voting models specify weight as: one per 
 voting account, or equal to the balance per voting account of XIN, an asset or a currency. 
 An aggregate weight for each answer is computed as the sum of all individual vote weights; 
 likewise an aggregate result is computed. Individual votes are saved until at least 1441 blocks 
 after the poll completes, typically more than a day. After this time, votes are deleted and only 
 aggregate weights and results remain available.
