In scenarios where community engagement and election participation is waning, international experts attending AMTCO were privy to Dr. Nicole Goodman´s research and insights on the effects of Internet voting as a tool to improve participation, community resilience and sustainability. Evidence from across the globe illustrates how:

- Strategies crucial in the successful deployment of Internet voting models can enhance citizen engagement and outreach.
- Online voting can help build civic participation and promote inclusion to foster a resilient and sustainable democratic culture in local communities.
