A study conducted by Julia Pomares, a political scientist, demonstrates that 27% of citizens use voting machines as means to elect their political representatives.
Some of the countries that use 100% automated systems are Brazil, Belgium, India, United States, the Philippines and Venezuela. Together, these countries bring together around 1.741.427.387 citizens that use electronic voting out of the 7.000.000.000 million inhabitants of the earth, which is equivalent to 24,87% of the total population.
As electoral systems have been evolving, admitting changes, new procedures and techniques to make electoral processes more efficient, fast and transparent, the electronic voting has been making allies and followers.
The successful experience that countries such as the Philippines, Brazil and Venezuela ―among others― had, reflects a high approval rating of the automated voting system from citizens. It is a common and logical change that is multiplying in democratic societies.
