Estonia opts for online voting, but how about the United States?
TALLINN, Estonia – In his victory speech, President Barack Obama acknowledged millions of voters’ frustration when he said that it was time to fix the long lines at voting stations that have become an Election Day blight in America.
For inspiration, Obama may want to turn to Estonia, an East European nation and staunch U.S. ally that allows its citizens to vote in the comfort of their homes – via the Internet.
Using an identity card and computer, Estonians can log on to an election website and cast a vote. Should they change their mind, no problem: they can log on again and resubmit their vote before a certain deadline. Only their last vote counts.
