Online voting and elections

Simple, convenient and secure with Swiss Post e-voting

E-voting allows Swiss voters to use electronic media to participate in votes and elections.

Voters currently vote in person at the ballot boxes or by mail. Swiss Post’s e-voting solution makes it possible to vote online by smartphone, tablet or computer any time and anywhere.

This is done by sending individual security codes to voters by physical post together with their voting or election documents, which they then use to log in to their canton’s e-voting platform. They can now cast a single vote, which is then stored, end-to-end encrypted and anonymized in the electronic ballot box. Only the cantonal electoral commission can open the ballot boxes to decrypt and count the votes.
