'Lonely hamburger' to tempt Estonians in e-voting test - AFP

AFP: 'Lonely hamburger' to tempt Estonians in e-voting test:

TALLINN (AFP) — Estonians are to have their taste buds tickled by an e-voting test for European parliamentary elections offering them joke candidates such as the lonely hamburger and tiramisu.

Bidding to spice up the lacklustre campaign for June 4-7 elections to the European Parliament, organisers hope such fare will encourage young Estonians to participate in the new high-tech voting system.

Estonia's electoral committee hopes the test poll, which will be available on the www.valimised.ee webpage from May 28 to June 3, will also iron out any glitches in the new online voting system.
