E-voting: making the best use of modern technologies for more active and democratic voting procedures
Description of call
"E-voting: making the best use of modern technologies for more active and democratic voting procedures"

The activities funded under this pilot project's call for action grants aiming to:

  • explore the role of internet services and applications in stimulating democratic participation and to investigate how digital tools can contribute to the stronger and longer-term democratic engagement of citizens;
  • elicit a broad range of proposals especially but not exclusively targeting young people and mobile EU citizens.

Stimulating democratic participation and contributing to stronger and longer-term democratic engagement should be understood in terms of (sustainably) increased voter turnout and voter engagement in the political process, and the activities which support this, such as accessible, efficient voting and registration processes, accessible and engaging political processes (such as involvement in candidate selection, debates etc), and accessible and transparent voter information.

The results of these projects will contribute inter alia to a tele-voting good practice guide aiming to help make voting procedures more accessible to mobilise a broader group of voters and thus enhance democratic participation at the EU level. All projects must be prepared with a specific, though not necessarily exclusive perspective on the 2019 European Elections.
