According to an article published by Mary Dejevsky, editor in chief of The Independent, the success of electronic registration should encourage the Parliament to adopt electronic voting for future elections.
Dejevsky highlights that electronic voting has been implemented in India and Estonia, two countries that could hardly be more different in terms of size and development, without major drawbacks.
Adoption of electronic voting would allow the abolition of postal voting and prevent intimidation at the polling station, both of which have compromised the integrity of some votes in recent years.
It is time to say goodbye to the pen and paper. The health of British democracy is too important for changes not to be made, said Dejevsky.
