The electoral process in most developing countries are often problematic. The root of the problem often stems from the lack of trust emanating from an event in the election process. Over the years, electronic voting solutions have been adopted. Unfortunately, these solutions have not solved the trust related issues on the electoral process. Blockchain is proposed in this chapter as a solution to this problem. This is because Blockchain is a technology designed based on the trust by default principle. Persons who do not trust each other are able to facilitate transactions on Blockchain in a trusted manner. The proposition is backed by a proof of concept using the Ghanaian electoral process as a case. This chapter concludes that Blockchain is indeed the missing link in the facilitation of trust between the relevant stakeholders in a national, provincial or local election.
