e-Estonia Live: i-Voting as key to future elections

i-voting future elections

Article content

The e-Estonia Live webinar series is hosted weekly on our e-Estonia Facebook page, where we connect with Estonian state experts and company representatives to discuss current issues and the developments within e-Estonia.

During this week’s webinar, we looked at the evolution of i-voting in Estonia. Our Digital Transformation Adviser, Florian Marcus, led the discussion with our public and private sector representatives – Arne Koitmäe, Head of the State Electoral Office and Sven Heiberg, i-Voting Product Manager at Cybernetica.

Together, they shed some light on how i-Voting came to be and what its necessary components are as a digital service. The discussion also touched upon how i-Voting works – both from the perspective of the user and from the backend. And how the system has been built to meet conflicting requirements such as ballot secrecy and determining the voter’s eligibility.
