Why Use Electronic Voting Many cite numerous advantages of implementing electronic voting and the potential for such a digital change. Below, we will try to outline the benefits of introducing this form of voting - electronic voting.
Increased Voter Turnout
One of the most common issues raised by voters themselves is the inaccessibility of polling stations, the complexity of getting there, and other similar reasons. If voting were done online, it would provide access to digital polling stations for voters who were previously unable to participate, resulting in higher voter turnout. According to a study involving over 2000 young people, 80% of voters would participate in elections if there was a digital option, i.e., electronic voting.
More Accurate Results Due to Reduced Human Error
To err is human, as the saying goes. It is clear to everyone that many factors affect an individual's capabilities. For instance, after a long, tiring day, there is a possibility of reduced concentration, a greater chance of oversight, and pressure to finish something quickly, which can result in errors.
Reduction in the Number of Invalid Ballots
A digital ballot cannot be torn, crossed out, written on, or left blank. Each digital ballot alerts if something is incorrectly entered or omitted, preventing intentional sabotage of the voting ballot.
Savings on Election Committee Members
Since the system handles the complete receipt, verification, and counting of votes, there is no need for as many people at polling stations, resulting in significant financial savings.
Elimination of Paper Usage
During parliamentary elections alone, Croatia consumes over 100 tons of paper. By using a digital platform and electronic voting, paper usage is minimized, preserving the environment, reducing the workload (printing, distribution), and being environmentally conscious.
Faster Vote Counting and Tallying
Once the elections are completed, the voting system provides results. There is no need for a recount, and the possibility of error is nearly impossible.
Reduction in Organizational Costs
Switching to electronic voting reduces numerous costs compared to traditional voting. There is no printing and distribution of paper ballots. The financial expenditure on the salaries of election committee members decreases. The cost of renting polling locations disappears. The only real cost of electronic voting is internet traffic usage.
These are just some of the reasons and advantages of implementing electronic voting.
