The French Ministry of Education used Scytl’s e-voting system to carry out the election in which French teachers elected their union representatives. Approximately 1.5 million electronic votes were cast in this election, setting a new worldwide record in the number of votes cast over the Internet in a public election. The election closed on October 20, after a 7-day voting period in which Internet voting was the only voting channel. Voters were able to obtain their voter credentials through an innovative online system based on one-time links that was also provided by Scytl. The entire electoral process comprised a total of 760 simultaneous sub-elections managed by 72 independent electoral boards across France (including overseas locations in the Pacific and the Caribbean).
