With e-Voting, the Confederation and the cantons want to digitise voting in elections and referendums. The electronic voting channel, which is currently in its trial phase, is intended to provide an additional option for mobile and barrier-free voting alongside postal and in person voting at the ballot box. Based on the new legal framework, the cantons should be able to resume trials with fully verifiable e-Voting systems. The goal is to run stable trial operations with a limited number of voters.
