Federal Council wants to transition e-voting into regular operation 27.06.2018

At its meeting on 27 June 2018, the Federal Council examined the final report of the “Vote électronique” group of experts and made various decisions regarding the next steps for e-voting. It wants to create a legal basis for the transition of electronic voting into regular operation. This should enable e-voting with minimal paper. The cantons can still decide themselves whether they would like to implement e-voting. Furthermore, eligible voters will of course still be free to cast their vote in person or by post.
