Swiss government to audit Swiss Post e-voting system

The Swiss government has announced that it will audit the Swiss Post e-voting system in order to assess whether the system is secure enough to be rolled out by cantons. The government will examine whether the system is in line with Swiss law, the risks involved, as well as practices including printing polling cards and counting votes. The audit results are expected next year, on the basis of which the government will decide if Swiss cantons can proceed with trials of the system.
