The Canton of Zurich is delighted to welcome you to its pages on SwissCommunity!


The Canton of Zurich has many faces, from the rural idyll of Niederweinigen to Zurich's perpetually pulsating Langstrasse, and everything in between. This variety makes the Canton unique for visitors and residents alike.

The Canton of Zurich and the citizens of Zurich abroad

The canton of Zurich is going to do another e-voting trial and, thus, is joining the cross-cantonal “Consortium Vote électronique” for 2014. The consortium consists of the cantons of Aargau, Graubünden, St. Gallen, Thurgau, Schaffhausen, Solothurn and Freiburg. The canton of Zurich’s first goal is for the Swiss abroad to participate in referenda and elections via e-voting in 2015. In the years following, Swiss citizens nationwide should be able to cast vote electronically.
