Swiss Post temporarily suspends its e-voting system 29.3.2019

The public intrusion test ordered by the Confederation and the cantons on Swiss Post’s new e-voting system is complete. Although the electronic ballot box could not be hacked, feedback on the published source code reveals critical errors. Since the integrity of votes and elections is a top priority, Swiss Post is taking action. It will correct the source code and have it reviewed again by independent experts. It will therefore not provide its e-voting system to the cantons for the votes of 19 May.
