Information and communication technology (ICT) has become a red thread of today. Due to the increasing dependence on information communication technology, many processes have moved from the so-called physical form to electronic form. The latter also included electoral processes, which is reflected in the fact that some countries have already conducted electronic voting (e-voting) in both Europe and the world. Many countries have switched to the latter process in order to increase electoral participation. In Slovenia, e-elections are not yet legally valid, although some small attempts have been made to introduce e-elections.
The purpose of the diploma work is to present the concept of e-elections and to analyze the electoral participation in selected countries. In the theoretical part, the concept of e-volley, technology, e-voting and the analysis of voter participation in European countries that have already conducted e-elections are presented in detail. The empirical part presents an analysis of the already conducted e-elections in Finland, Estonia and Switzerland, as well as the number of voting participants who took part in e-elections.
