  18. 18. Mobile Voting Definition (for this presentation)…<br />
  19. 19. Mobile Voting Definition (for this presentation)<br />Usage of a Mobile Phone (wireless capabilities) to vote, participate to an election in the context of the Democracy<br />With long lines expected at polling places for any elections, many young and less young voters may be wondering today “why couldn’t I vote with my Mobile phone”? Wouldn’t that be easier than taking time-off and fighting the crowd? After all, the younger generation is already used to shopping mobile, paying mobile and even voting via sms for many entertainment series or opinion surveys… so why not mobile voting ensuring a fair election?<br />Mr. Aviv - 2008<br />
  20. 20. Key Requirements of Mobile Voting<br />Delivering to the voting entity the absolute confidence that only the authorized voter will, indeed, vote.<br />Enabling the voter to vote with absolute confidentiality, nobody will ever know what he/she voted (varies by countries – CH vs UK).<br />Enabling the voter to vote from anywhere in the globe, wherever he/she will be, and without needing any special network, nor equipment, nor a personal computer (PC).<br />Enabling the voter to vote with confidence that their vote will reach the final count with no compromised integrity, in others words what he/she have voted is what the voting authorities will get.<br />Enabling only the voter to vote, avoiding the possibility to “sell a vote”<br />Democratic Control: enabling the recount of the electronic votes, as many times as desired, eliminating any possible doubts on the result and delivering a way to verify voters&apos; choices after the fact.<br />Eliminating the need to showing up in some physical location and saying who you are under penalty of perjury in order to gain the right to vote<br />
  21. 21. Key Objectives of Mobile Voting<br />Additional attractive voting channel (not a replacement)<br />Improve accessibility to elderly people, disabled, blind…<br />Increase participation rate<br />Improve accessibility to people living abroad or travelling at voting time.<br />Reduces voting costs (?)<br />m-inclusion<br />Provide an alternative to avoid unfair or unlawful exclusion from voting.<br />
  22. 22. Why Mobile Voting ?<br />At least 10 percent of the U.S. population will use mobile to interact with government by2012, according to Michael Cambell<br />Madrid Participa consulted citizens regarding key issues related to the development of their district. 16% of participants utilized the secure mVoting platform <br />In a country (India) where over 700 million people are eligible to vote and more than half that number have access to mobile phones (375 million according to TRAI data), wouldn’t a voting-on-the-go option also help counter voter apathy?.<br />Swiss citizens are called four to six times a year to the ballot. In Geneva, postal voting has been introduced in 1995, in reaction to the disaffection of ballot. It pushed turnout up by 20 percentage points, from 30-35 % in 1995 to 50-55 % on the average in 2004. The message is clear: citizens want simplicity and convenience <br />CH-2004: 24 % des votantsontutilisé la voieélectronique, avec unenettepréférence pour l’Internet.

It was the end of a series of tests launched in 2003 in Switzerland, initially in Geneva, then in Neuchâtel and Zurich.<br />As Spain’s first ever multi-channel e-participation event for some 120,000 citizens (also one of the largest such events in Europe), Madrid Participa consulted citizens regarding key issues related to the development of their district. 16% of participants utilized the secure mVoting platform <br />Estonia approves voting by mobile phone, Dec 14, 2008  <br />Estonia’s parliament has approved a law that will make Estonia the first country in the world to allow voting by mobile phone. Estonia already has an Internet-based voting system that was used successfully in last year’s parliamentary vote. Expanding upon that success, Estonia intends on having a mobile voting system in place for its next election slated for 2011 <br />Russia&apos;s parliament has approved a new law, enabling citizens to vote by mobile phone in the next parliamentary elections, scheduled for 2011, reports RiaNovosti citing the head of the elections commission, Vladimir Churov<br />
