Despite advances in digital technology, Australians still vote on a paper ballot. Yet by the next federal election, 73 per cent of voters expect to be able to vote online.

Faster election results, greater convenience and accessibility, and significant cost savings are the main drivers of this expectation.

Our insights paper, A new way to have our say: Australia’s roadmap to eVoting, discusses the implications of our research findings and outlines a roadmap towards a secure, trusted eVoting platform. It also explores:

  • The essential elements of an election management platform
  • The benefits of eVoting – from enrolment to casting and counting votes
  • What we can learn from trials within Australia and overseas, including the 2016 Census
  • How existing technology can mitigate the risks of cyber-attacks and privacy breaches
