Council of Europe Report on Internet Voting in the 2007 Estonian National Elections Released

Earlier this year, in March 2007, Internet voting was used in the Estonian parliamentary elections. Thad and I participated in a project studying this Internet voting application, sponsored by the Council of Europe, directed by Professor Alexander H. Trechsel (who directs the European Union Democracy Observatory at the European University Institute in Florence), and in collaboration with Guido Schwerdt and Fabian Breuer. The report that we wrote that analyses the results of the survey we conducted among Estonian voters has just been posted on the European Union Democracy Observatory website: “Internet voting in the March 2007 Parliamentary Elections in Estonia.” The report presents detailed analysis from our survey, and presents a number of important recommendations regarding the future use of Internet voting in Estonia.
