King Conservation District Holds Largest Online Election

The largest Internet voting election in the US is currently taking place in King County, Washington. Registered voters must first FAX, mail or email their signatures to the private company conducting the election to confirm their identity after which they are sent an ID code to vote online. Motivation for the online election stems from reduced election administration costs ($1 million for an all mail election and only $50K for the online one) and the hopes of increased turnout.  You can read about the election here.
