The Norwegian Ministry of Local Government established in August 2008 a project where the objective is to implement trials with electronic voting at municipal elections in 2011 in selected municipalities. The project will deliver a fully functional e-voting system.
To this end, the project will:
Specify the technological platform
Decide upon e-voting pilots for the 2011 local elections. The possible scope for pilots
includes geography, voter groups and voting in a controlled or uncontrolled environment.
Procure an e-voting system
Secure acceptance of e-voting amongst both policy makers and the general population
Pave the way for, and assist in the organizational adoption of the e-voting system by the selected pilot authorities.
Procure partnerships for the running and maintenance of the e-voting system
Plan for the eventual full scale adoption of e-voting in Norway
