The British Labour Party approved a new regulation which includes online voting as an option in the upcoming Labour leadership and deputy leadership elections.
Last year, the National Executive Committee used this technology for their internal elections.
The Scottish National Party also used online voting to elect their new Deputy Leader, Stewart Hosie, following the 2014 Scottish independence referendum.
The Party has also called for online voting to be piloted in the UK national elections. Party speakers said that this type of voting could lead to a transformation in how people engage in democracy.
