Voting System

Assembly Voting is Denmark's most used electronic Voting System for elections and in accordance with legal regulations and articles of association. The system was originally developed in Denmark and supports all current types of ballots.

A dedicated Voting System

  • Voting rights. Only qualified persons can take part in the voting process
  • Voter anonymity. Full separation of the vote cast from voter ID
  • Fairness. No system access to results during the voting process
  • Documentation. Automatically generated Election Report with a log of all system activity
  • Neutral result validation. The possibility of auditing election results 
  • Accessibility. Full accessibility for all voter groups
  • System documentation. Documented voting system and procedures for data processing

The voting application, servers, host environment and data procedures are under continuous observation by independent auditing companies.

The voting system is subject to ongoing improvements in response to pre-eminent international research. This includes the work carried out through our partnership with DemTech at the IT University of Copenhagen.

E2E-voting solutions

The Voting System is a complete solution, ensuring that all requirements in connection with articles of association are met and that all necessary documentation is provided.

For each election, Assembly Voting creates a detailed specification with different stages and their associated activities. Assembly Voting prepares (or assists) the individual elements in the voting process, such as voter data, ballot papers, system set-up and election information. A full test is always executed before the opening of the election.

Hybrid voting

If requested, electronic voting may be supplemented with paper ballot cards. Assembly Voting has procedures which govern the processing of paper ballot cards in accordance with electronic voting. This includes both the general dispatch of paper ballot material and voter-initiated requests for paper ballot cards.

The voting system  is easily accessible to the voters, ballot officers and external independent auditors.
