Digitalized local democracy: Increase of 47 % in digital votes
The local government of Copenhagen has for the second time held an election for the Elderly Citizen’s Council, which included the municipality’s 85.000 elderly citizens (+60 years old). They were introduced to a hybrid election solution, where the electors got to choose whether they wanted to vote by postal ballot papers or by electronic voting cards via Nem-ID (a Danish national digital signature). The overall solution is developed by Assembly Voting and contains a module for the candidates to register and present their candidacy for the electors, accompanied by an election system for the completion of the hybrid election.
