Voting from afar
E-voting would allow many Swiss Abroad to vote in their home country.

This continually updated dossier contains all relevant “Swiss Review” articles on e-voting to date, documents how the Organisation of the Swiss Abroad and the Council of the Swiss Abroad view the matter, and provides links to additional sources of information.
