Geneva E-voting System
Institution: The State of Geneva, Switzerland
Theme: Institution and HR Management
Implementation Date: Jan 01, 2000
Summary: The State of Geneva is working on an internet voting solution and organizing official on-line ballots on a regular basis.

The E-voting project involves a complex and highly secure system of servers and databases that are used to verify the identity of the voter and protect their privacy and the integrity of their vote.

The Geneva EVoting project was selected among the finalists for the eEurope Awards for eGovernment 2005.
Impact: A poll conducted in the Spring of 2003 on behalf of the Swiss Federal Government has shown that 72% of the Swiss population wants to be able to vote online.

Furthermore, the Geneva authorities have concluded that eVoting strengthens the legitimacy of the popular choices by allowing for a better age balance of the voters’ group, on the one hand, and by confirming the choices expressed by the two other voting channels, on the other.
