Elections are the most important event in any democratic country and conducting them safe and transparent is a challenging job for the agencies. This is because most of the electoral agencies are nowadays dealing with a huge number of voters and voting booths in remote locations. So the challenge to protect the vote after the voting process becomes more tedious and financial burden to the country. To secure this data in the most efficient and trusted manner various technologies are used. One of the trending techniques used in a distributed environment to secure data is blockchain. Blocks in blockchain have body and header. In most of the trivial systems, the body of the block contains plain transactions that is threat to the system. So this paper puts its efforts to investigate the pros and cons of the past research work to understand them in detail. This understanding will lead to a conclusion on providing greater security for the election data with less complexity.
