iVoting, short for internet voting, refers to systems which allow people to vote in an election or referendum from any device connected to the internet through an app or online portal. iVoting differs from other forms of electronic voting, such as through voting machines, in that it is software-based and doesn’t require the involvement of cumbersome and costly machinery for it to operate, nor does it require election volunteers or the electorate to go to a physical polling place to vote.
