Online voting can bring clear benefits to voters in terms of convenience, accessibility and ease of use.
A democracy should be truly accessible and transparent, while maintaining a high degree of security and confidentiality. Estonia’s growth in online voting is a testament of what a clear vision and commitment can bring.
