Internet Voting and Expatriate Voter Turnout

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

This short paper reports the results of ongoing research into the effect of remote internet voting on electoral turnout among Swiss citizens who live abroad. Preliminary results show that internet voting increases registered expatriate voter turnout by around 5 percentage points compared to mail-only voting. This suggests that internet voting is an effective method to increase turnout among citizens abroad.
