OVERVIEW

Online Voting has the opportunity to deliver

more accessible, transparent, secure and cost effective elections for Election Commissions.

Utilising technology such as computers, phones and tablets in conjunction with blockchain, cloud or hybrid computing and advanced cryptography has paved the way for delivering efficient and credible election processes.

Furthermore, the advent of online voting has

the potential to reduce operational costs

substantially whilst simplifying, streamlining and increasing vote casting and counting.

This webinar seeks to explore the benefits,

concepts, use-cases, technology and

experiences in relation to utilising online voting within election processes.
