Bulgaria:: e-vote to failure - Columnists - The Sofia Echo

Offline: e-vote to failure - Columnists - The Sofia Echo:

With about two months to go before general elections, the Bulgarian Parliament decided it would experimentally introduce e-voting at the 2009 elections. How e-voting is going to work exactly is anyone’s guess at this point as the precise procedure still has to be decided on.

All that is known for now is that there would be no online e-voting as many Bulgarians abroad hoped for. Instead, 50 to 60 polling stations would be outfitted with a computerised system and a magnetic card reader. The timing of the decision raises a series of questions at the very least.
