Online voting is a form of voting in which the individuals are able to cast their votes through a web interface. Through the use of online voting, the voter navigates to the designated election site using a web browser on an ordinary PC. The voter is then permitted to select their chosen candidate and then cast the votes which would then be sent to the election server for processing. There are three main types of online voting as stated below:
Kiosk Internet Voting: Voting from computers in kiosks set up by voting authority in locations such as post offices and shopping malls.
Poll Site Internet Voting: Voting from designated polling sites to cast their votes by using web interface.
Remote Internet Voting: Voting from any from any location through the use of a computer connected to the internet. Remote voting is typically carried out at the voter’s home or work place.
