In this paper, we present an electronic voting scheme with a single voting center using an anonymous channel. The proposed scheme is a 3-move protocol between each voter and the center, with one extra move if one wants to make objection to the tally. This objection can be broadcasted widely since it will not disclose the vote itself to the other parties besides the center. The main idea in the proposal is that each voter sends anonymously a public key signed by the center and an encrypted vote decryptable using this key. Since even the center cannot modify a received ballot to a different vote using the same public key, the key can be used as an evidence in making open objection to the tally.
