The upcoming elections are getting a lot of international press the past couple of days thanks to the use of e-voting. This will be the first time in the world that parliamentary elections are being voted for over the internet. It seems world apart from the US and their whole hanging chad, we can't figure out how to hold a incontestable election mess that will no doubt rear it's ugly head again in 2008. The one part about this that is troublesome is that it's still expected that 50% or less will bother voting in the elections. A lot of people use the laziness excuse to not vote, since they usually have to walk 10 minutes but that excuse is gone with internet voting. 72% of eestlased do their banking online regularly and a similar high percentage file their taxes online. So why do more people take advantage of the this new option and vote from the comfort of their living room?
