Bulgaria Parliament Introduces Experimental Electronic Voting Online

Bulgarian parliament passed on Wednesday a portion of the Election Code at second reading, FOCUS News Agency reported.
According to the amendments, it is envisaged a possibility for experimental electronic voting online will be created in holding elections until 2018.
The experimental electronic voting will take place in up to 20 polling stations the Central Electoral Commission (CEC) will determine by casting lots and following a preliminary approved set of methods.
CEC will receive the data from the Directorate-General for Civil Registration and Administrative Services at the Ministry of Regional Development and Public Works and will inform citizens about the opportunity they will be granted to vote in written form.
Voters who want to vote electronically will have to make this clear on a special website.
As the voting will be experimental, the votes online will not be taken into consideration when announcing the election results.
Each voter that votes online will be able to cast a paper ballot, too.
The amendments to the Election Code envisage the establishment of a special body with the Council of Ministers that will be in charge of the technical aspect of online voting.
