According to Tarvi Martens, head of the Department of Electronic Voting of the National Electoral Committee, Estonia is working to improve verification systems of electronic voting.
The aim is to make Internet voting even more transparent and easier to monitor. Researchers believe that greater transparency would increase trust in election results.
Given the success that Estonia has had with Internet voting, experts believe that in the near future it will become popular outside the context of national elections. This means the system could be implemented in internal elections of political parties, trade unions and universities.
Martens was one of the speakers at an international forum on electronic voting that took place at the University of Tartu last month to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the online voting system developed in Estonia.
