Definition Edit

Remote internet voting means

the unsupervised use of an Internet voting machine to cast a ballot over the Internet using a computer not necessarily owned and operated by election personnel. Authentication of the voter would include some form of identity verification that is at least as secure as existing voting procedures.[1]

Locations would include private sites, such as the home, school or office. Ideally, this type of open network system would enable voting from virtually anywhere at anytime; however, the concomitant risks are significant.

Overview Edit

While remote internet voting has attracted the most public and media attention, and is often considered synonymous with Internet voting, there are many issues — both technical and policy-related — that must be resolved before remote voting is feasible.
