Vote count validation

I’m not skeptical of the voting process, I just have to ask the following question out of curiosity: how can we validate the voting process, how do we know the voting results that are c.q. will be reported (i.e. the vote counts) are valid? Thanks.

Great question. My understanding is that its written to the blockchain from the voting app, so should be visible to all. But i have no idea how you go and interrogate it.

Maybe each proosal is given a separate address and then sll the voters sre minted voting tokens based on ADA available in wallets at the checkpoint count.

If you cast a vote for a proposal then the tokens are transferred to the proposals address. Hence why you cant vote again once you commit on that proposal. But we have to factor downvotes… so either a separate type of token or one with a negative value is transferred.

All speculation though, so assume someone else can explain in detail and where we need to look.
