Evaluation of E-voting in Norway

Following the 2011 trials of Internet voting in 10 of Norway’s 429 municipalities, authorities contracted two research centers and IFES to carry out a thorough evaluation of the system. The evaluation used both qualitative and quantitative research methods, including questionnaire surveys in the trial municipalities, in-depth interviews with selected groups, focus groups for young people and observation studies of user-friendliness for voters with disabilities.

  • The evaluation sought to assess the project in the following seven areas:
  • Availability and accessibility
  • Trust and credibility
  • Secrecy of voting (e.g., family voting, undue influence)
  • Efficient counting of votes/fast electoral results
  • Participation and turnout
  • International experience with e-voting
  • Compliance with international standards

The evaluation reports are available on the website of the Ministry of Local Government and Regional Development at: www.regjeringen.no/en/dep/krd/prosjekter/e-vote-2011-project/evaluations-of-the-e-voting-trials/evaluation-of-the-e-voting-trials-in-201.html?id=684642
