E-Voting in America
The United States has yet to largely adopt the electronic method of voting, but steps are being taken to research the benefits and put together a plan that both protects the voters, as well as the electoral process. This will require extensive research and planning, as well as education for both politicians and voters, to ensure everyone is on the same page with these changes. However, once electronic voting is perfected and implemented, it will encourage more people to vote. In the United States, many people avoid going to the polls for a variety of reasons, including an inability to get around easily. Electronic voting can fix many of these issues.
E-voting has become a more common method of voting in various European countries. E-Voting.CC is an organization that strives to help government agencies implement the right voting strategies so more people can have their voices heard. With greater voting participation, elected leaders and new laws will be a better reflection of what the people want because more people will take the time to vote and express their opinions.
