NSW Electoral Commission iVote and Swiss Post e-voting update
In its media release dated 12 March 2019, the NSW Electoral Commission advised it was aware of an issue relating to its iVote internet and telephone voting system. This issue was raised in the context of the e-voting system operated by Swiss Post. A patch addressing that issue has been installed by the NSW Electoral Commission.
The academics who raised that earlier issue have advised they believe they have identified a further issue with the Swiss Post system.
Based on its assessment of the information supplied by these academics, the NSW Electoral Commission is confident that the new issue they describe in the Swiss Post system is not relevant to the iVote system.
Editor’s note: As at 4.40pm on 22 March 2019, 227,521 people have registered for iVote and 187,559 votes have been cast.
