When talking about E-Voting it is necessary to define the subject.
We understand by electronic voting the use of electronic means in at least the casting of the vote.
The definition of e-voting is the use of electronic means and voting technologies in one of the following three processes:
- Identification of the voter
- Casting the vote
- Counting the votes
