Scytl successfully carries out the first Internet voting project in Norway

Nov 2, 2010

As part of the “E-vote 2011-project” from the Norwegian Government, Scytl has successfully carried out the first Internet voting trial during Ålesund’s Youth Council election. From October 15th to 18th, 3,400 young people aged between 14 and 19 residing in the municipality of Ålesund were able to cast 543 votes from 171 voters through the Internet to elect their representatives. This fall, five other municipalities will also use Internet voting to conduct elections in either youth or advisory referendums. These experiences will be used to evaluate and further develop the Internet voting system that will be implemented in the 2011 municipal elections by ten municipalities in addition to regular paper-based voting.
