20. August 2012

Date: August 20, 2012 from 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM

Location: ITU, 4A14

At the state level, the number of votes that need to be counted by hand is not usually a primary concern. So why are Australian Electoral Commissioners actively pursuing electronic voting? What are their primary motivations? How aware are they of the risks?

In this talk at the IT-University in Copenhagen, ​Rajeev Gore from the Research School of Computer Science, Australian National University, will outline the current initiatives and concerns regarding electronic voting in Australia at the state level.
