Estonian elections: 2014 -2015

The Estonian i-voting solution is the longest-standing, most technologically advanced, and highly trusted internet voting solution in existence. It has been used to support binding, governmental elections since 2005, and to date has successfully delivered eight nationwide elections.

Such is the level of public trust in the system that during the last two elections held, 31% of the participating voters chose to cast their ballot online.

The 176,328 i-voters who used the system in the last elections, Parliament 2015, represent an increase of 25% since the Parliamentary elections in 2011, and reaffirm the growth in the adoption of i-voting which dates back to 2005, when only 9,317 citizens voted online.

Since the introduction of i-voting in Estonia, overall turnout has risen.
