Bulgarian e-Vote Needs BGN 4 M
Building Bulgaria's online-voting system will cost at least 4 million levs, according to a parliament member.
The MPs have introduced a bill for e-voting in general and presidential elections, as well as in the election of Bulgarian members for the EU Parliament.
According to the bill, those who want to take part in the vote online would have to file applications three weeks earlier. A few days later, they would receive user name and password in a registered letter.
Lawmakers hope that introducing the e-vote can boost polls turnout.
