here is an interesting article I found:
Students will be able to vote via the internet in the Council elections in April as an alternative to postal voting. Announcing the decision, Returning Officer and GMC Chief Executive Finlay Scott said:
'We want to explore all the options for promoting voter involvement. We consulted doctors' organisations and found that there was a lot of support for piloting internet voting across all the constituencies. We will be very interested to get voter feedback after the elections.'
The benefits of internet voting are
Voters can vote from anywhere with an internet connection
Votes can be cast 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
There are no spoiled votes
Improved access to voting, encouraging increased participation
All voters will be sent a postal ballot paper when voting begins on 28 March.
Voting will take place between 28 March and 25 April. The results will be published on 1 May. Members will take office on 1 July and the first meeting of the reconstituted Council will be on 9-10 July.
Notes for editors
How does internet voting work?
Voters receive a ballot paper with a unique random PIN number and a web address
The voter enters their PIN number to access the voting website
Once the PIN number has been used, it cannot be used again
Voters have the opportunity to confirm their vote before it is submitted, and the vote is acknowledged
What happens if someone tried to vote more than once with the same PIN?
The system will pick this up and not allow the subsequent votes.
What happens if someone tried to vote both electronically and by using the voting paper?
PIN numbers will be matched against security codes on returned voting papers. Only the first vote received will be counted.
Does this mean that the ballot is not secret?
No. The system can pick up attempts at multiple voting by the same voter, without knowing who the voter is.
But I don't have a computer at home or at work
You can use any PC with an internet connection - for example in an internet café, or in a library.
What security will be in place to ensure that Internet voting results cannot be altered and that the system cannot be brought down by hackers?
The voting system has 1024-bit encryption and other security measures to protect against hacker or denial of service attacks. The system uses uninterruptible power supplies and is physically protected by a non-destructive fire suppression system.
Is the internet voting site on the GMC website?
No, the internet voting site will be managed separately by Electoral Reform Services (ERS).
Won't it be difficult to see all the candidate details on the computer screen?
ERS have a lot of experience of formatting information for display on computer screens. The information will include candidate photos and statements. Now that England has been split into five constituencies, there should not be a huge number of candidates in a single constituency as there was in 1999.
Will internet voting add to the cost of the elections?
The cost of internet voting will be around £13 000, in an overall election budget of around £200 000. The biggest cost is the printing and dispatch of voting papers.
