Countries that use electronic voting

Nearly all countries now use digital technology for at least some aspects of election management. Creating and managing voter registers, as well as transmitting and tabulating results have been digitalised in nearly all countries.
Conversely, electronic vote-casting has been less universally adopted; in developing democracies, where elections have often been marred by fraud, it is – rightly or wrongly – often seen as a means of ensuring a more credible poll. As a result, voting machines and other electronic voting systems are becoming increasingly widespread in Latin America, as well as in the Middle and Far East. In contrast, European countries are more reticent, preferring tried-and-trusted traditional methods, with a manual count of paper ballots to experimenting with potentially unreliable new technologies.
