Polling Problems Could Lead To e-Voting | eWEEK Europe UK

Polling Problems Could Lead To e-Voting | eWEEK Europe UK

Pressure is building to introduce electronic voting in the UK, after some citizens were unable to take part in yesterday's General Election.

Problems at polling stations, which left many people unable to cast their vote in the UK general election, are likely to prompt renewed calls for e-voting, according to analyst group Ovum.

Last night, hundreds of voters were turned away from polling stations, and police were called in to deal with queues, after the doors of polling booths closed at 10pm BST. Higher than expected turnouts across the country meant that many stations were understaffed and, in Liverpool, even ran out of ballot papers. --->>>
