The Council of Europe’s e-voting project was initiated to help member states use e-voting as a response to falling participation rates in elections and referenda; especially to deal with the potential risks to security and secrecy posed by e-voting. The main focus of the project is to follow up on the Council’s recommendation made in 2004 on e-voting.
