Transaction lifecycle on the Ethereum blockchain

Figure 1. The lifecycle of a voting transaction. A voting transaction is created when a voter browser invokes the castVote() function on the Voting smart contract on a local node of the Ethereum network. This is then validated and propagated throughout the network until it is included on a new blockchain block by a mining node. The new block is propagated throughout the network, then it finally gets back to the local node.
