The Canton of Graubünden has been trialling electronic voting since 2010. The technical basis for the Vote électronique trial is a platform shared by seven cantons. At present, only Swiss expats have the option of voting electronically. The cantonal government is pursuing the long-term goal of gradually making this new form of voting available to all voters in the Canton of Graubünden. Of course, security considerations are being given maximum priority. The current Vote électronique system already meets very high standards. By implementing various measures, the cantonal government is doing everything possible to satisfy the stringent security requirements of electronic voting and ballot systems.
A video produced by the State Chancellery of the Canton of Graubünden explains how Vote électronique works:
