Privacy is an important issue in electronic voting. Several electronic voting schemes have been developed in the past and some of them provided methods for dealing with privacy protection in the electronic voting system. To further enhance the privacy level, in this paper, we propose a new approach to tackle the privacy problem inherent in the electronic voting system. A privacy measure is proposed and extensive privacy analysis is conducted for the proposed scheme. It is shown via experiments that the proposed method is effective in electronic voting systems.
