With over 1.76 million votes securely cast, the 2014 French Ministry of Education election once again sets the record for online votes cast in a binding and public election. After the successful and secure execution of the 2011 elections, the ministry once again leveraged their investment in Scytl Online Voting technology to run the 2014 elections where MEN employees voted for their union representatives.
With three ministries leveraging online voting for binding elections, France is leading the way in the strategic uptake of the online channel for ongoing binding elections. In addition to the Ministry of Education, Scytl Online Voting has been leveraged by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs to securely run 5 elections since 2009 and the Ministry of Interior which has recently implemented Scytl´s secure technology for their first online voting election in December 2014.
