Voter anonymity, also known as unlinkability, is the primary requirement to satisfy privacy in e-voting protocols. Up until now, e-voting protocols have tried to make communication channels anonymous in order to keep voter's identity hidden and many protocols have been proposed to construct anonymous communication channels. On the other hand, instead of making channel anonymous if we provide anonymous credentials to voter, we can easily hide voter's identity without any need of anonymous channels.
