Finn's Going for E-Voting

Finland’s communications minister, was quoted as saying by Aamulehti on Monday that Finland was advised to take heed of good experiences of online voting in Estonia. Ms Lindén told the Tampere daily that the internet was the busiest polling station in Estonia’s previous general election. The minister sees Finns voting online in a general election for the first time in 2015 after trials in municipal polls. Ms Lindén would use identity cards embedded with chips rather than internet banking codes as the means of identification in online voting. Jarmo Korhonen, the party secretary of the Centre party, was quoted as saying in the same story that Ms Lindén should bury the idea lest it imperil the entire reform of the Election Act.”
