European Electronic Voting Workshop - Sharing & Learning across Europe
Thursday, February 8, 2007 from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM (GMT)
London, United Kingdom
Governments around the world are increasingly drawn towards e-voting, despite the significant problems that have arisen in a number of elections. This workshop, chaired by Jason Kitcat, will bring together e-voting experts from around Europe and the US to share knowledge, ideas and experiences - frequently what happens in one country is repeated in another.
The workshop will include:
- Short country status reports from e-voting experts
- A longer report from The Netherlands including an extended demonstration of hacking a Nedap machine by Rop Gonggrijp
- Discussion of EFVE & EDRI (existing European umbrella organisations)
- Development of an action plan on how to develop European co-operation

The digital age is transforming society: bringing us greater democracy, transparency and new creative possibilities. When these freedoms are under attack, the Open Rights Group is there to defend them.

Getting into the political trenches in the UK and EU, we mobilise our supporters to stop bad laws. Working closely with other campaign groups, we lobby government and talk to the media whenever our rights are threatened.
ORG is a non-profit company funded by donors, mostly by people like you. We depend on regular contributions to run and win our campaigns.
