G2G collaboration to support the deployment of e-voting in the UK

Abstract

In this paper we identify the high-level requirements for a G2G collaborative platform to support the deployment of e-voting in the UK context. After referring to the stakeholders involved in the deployment of e-voting projects we identify the government agents that the platform would serve. Based on the process description followed in earlier pilots we define the role of each government agent and subsequently suggest four areas of collaborative support. Accordingly we refer to aspects of knowledge sharing that the system could foster. In concluding we suggest not only the usefulness of such a collaborative system for government agents but also its prospective benefit in supporting transparency and public scrutiny of e-voting.
