[liberationtech] E-Voting

Hi Zack,

Estonia has been using e-voting since 2005 (and since 2007 for government elections). You can identify using the national id card (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Estonian_ID_card <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Estonian_ID_card>) or mobile-id (https://eid.eesti.ee/index.php/A_Short_Introduction_to_eID <https://eid.eesti.ee/index.php/A_Short_Introduction_to_eID>).

Transparency is certainly improved. You can check and change your vote after casting it. Estonian government even provides an iOS and Android mobile application for this. Most of the criticism comes down to voter devices potentially being phished and infected and multi-platform access aims to combat that.

IDABC country report gives a quick overview: http://ec.europa.eu/idabc/servlets/Doc7bd5.pdf?id=32323 <http://ec.europa.eu/idabc/servlets/Doc7bd5.pdf?id=32323>

The challenges are certainly real but so is the potential.
