Successful comeback: e-voting in the canton of Thurgau 25.09.2018
Swiss Post’s e-voting system was used for the first time during the voting weekend on 23 September 2018 in the canton of Thurgau. Swiss citizens from Thurgau resident abroad were given the opportunity to submit their vote electronically.
The deployment of the system ran smoothly. 527 votes were submitted electronically by Swiss citizens resident abroad from a total of 1017, which corresponds to over 50% of votes.
In future, the Thurgau electorate residing in the canton will also benefit from e-voting.
The electronic voting channel was available for use in Thurgau between 2010 and 2015, but it was a system supplied by the “Vote électronique” consortium.
