SIGN THE OSA PETITION ON E-VOTING FOR SWISS ABROAD
Petition deadline 28 November 2018
www.evoting2021.ch
LESS DETAILSMORE DETAILS

OSA's call on the Swiss Federal Council & Parliament to make e-voting available to all Swiss Abroad by 2021.

The link to sign the petition online is www.evoting2021.ch

For many countries the postal service does not work (well enough) and the Swiss abroad are prevented from voting in Switzerland. Those of us who vote in a canton which already allows e-Voting, know how convenient this is.

The Organisation of the Swiss Abroad (OSA) has started and online petition to introduce e-Voting for all Swiss Abroad. We kindly ask you to sign this petition.

This petition aims to enable the 172,100 Swiss people around the world registered on an electoral register to exercise their political rights.

The petition can be signed until 28 November 2018 and will be submitted to the Federal Chancellery on 30 November 2018.
