  • The particular paper looks at the electorate’s attitude of remote e-voting system in the USA. To do so, it examines the topic via REVSs, that is the Remote Electronic Voting Systems, which have become a sustainable mechanism during official political electoral processes. REVSs contribution is multidimensional: they encourage voting from distance, ameliorate monitoring, facilitate...

  • The purpose of this paper is to provide valuable information and guidance for countries that opt for employing e-voting processes. The latter refers to elections or referendums and regards electronic methods for at the process of vote casting. Since the “Council of Europe Recommendation on legal, operational and technical standards for e-voting”, there has been considerable...

  • This paper reports on a project conducted for the period between January 2003 and April 2005 in Geneva. In eight official votes during this period, approximately 90,000 voters were invited to test a remote e-voting method, which was complementary to the traditional electoral process. The paper surveys the results of the particular project in terms of figures as well as of socio-political...

  • E-voting systems have provoked vivid debate regarding their ‘dependability’ requirements. The latter are comprised of a complex and, simultaneously, critical combination of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and human capital. Drawing on a recent proposal that involves cryptographic methods for fault tolerance, this paper surpasses some of the threats of e-voting and...

  • Drawing on a telephone survey during the municipal electoral process on 16 October 2005 in Estonia, this report explores aspects of internet-based e-voting. The particular elections are of high significance for further research on electronic electoral processes, since they were the first elections, worldwide, conducted entirely in an national scale. By taking into account the existing...

  • This study provides the AMVA/FROG electronic architecture for e-voting, in an effort to tackle the problem of vulnerability of the system. It also emphasises on the need to promote of an innovative e-Vote industry, which provides valuable and lightly-secured ballot generation modules. The paper further suggests the particular engineering could substantially contribute to increase the levels of...

  • Within U.S. context, this paper elucidates the fragile nature of e-voting and attempts to recommend ways to impair its problems. Although independent bodies certified the systems’ sufficiency and capacity to contribute to the electoral process, it has been proved that the relevant standards were flawed. As a result, media and public attention has been drawn to the vulnerability of...
