Online Voting

Online voting (web poll) means conducting an online election or voting on a resolution online. With an online ballot you can vote on persons (candidates), or on questions and open decisions. Decision-making is important for all institutions that are governed on a democratic basis or which take the will of the majority as binding in collective decisions.
