We propose a practical verifiable e-voting protocol which guarantees e-voting requirements: privacy, eligibility, uniqueness, uncoercibility, fairness, accuracy, robustness, individual verifiability, and universal verifiability. Unlike existing e-voting protocols we employ dynamic ballot instead of pre-defined usual ballot in order to strengthen accuracy and fairness of the protocol. In dynamic ballots, the ordering of candidates in the ballots is dynamically created and changes for each voter. Therefore the proposed protocol is called as "DynaVote ".
