Jury still out on hi-tech polling
No form of e-voting will emerge in Australia until at least the end of the decade, says Australian Electoral Commission election systems and policy director Tim Evans.
A proposal to begin an e-voting project, offering online access to those who would otherwise vote by postal ballot, has been rejected by the parliamentary Joint Standing Committee on Electoral Matters.
The reason: the politicians don't trust the technology.
