Electoral commission registers e-voting uptick in NSW by-election
Users of the NSWEC’s iVote system doubled in the Clarence electorate
Record numbers of NSW voters used the state electoral commission’s e-voting system, iVote, to cast their ballot in the recent by-election for the seat of Clarence. The number of voters who employed iVote in the electorate more than doubled compared to the March state election.
The iVote system was established by the NSW Electoral Commission’s (NSWEC) for blind, vision-impaired and disabled voters, as well as those living in remote areas and out of state on the day. It was first slated in June 2010 and used in the state election earlier, with more than triple the number of expected voters casting an e-ballot with the system. --->>>
