Ingo Senftleben, chairman of Brandenburg’s Christian Democratic Union (CDU) party suggested the introduction of internet voting as a countermeasure to the low turnout (48%) in the recent state elections.

Electronic voting has been attracting considerable attention during the last years. Brazil has had a long history with e-voting and countries like the Philippines and Estonia continue to set positive examples for the rest of the world to follow.

Senftleben referred to Estonia, where i-voting has been successful in many elections, offering citizens a safe and dynamic electoral system.
