CEC head Lee Chin-yung says electronic voting must be implemented carefully
Head of Taiwan’s Central Election Commission (CEC) Lee Chin-yung says Taiwan will not implement electronic voting at the cost of public trust. That came during a report to the legislature on Monday morning. Lee says digitizing Taiwan’s voting system is an important future step for the country. However, he says the CEC is still looking into the feasibility.
In a 2018 referendum, Taiwanese citizens voted in favor of digitizing the nation’s voting system. Lee says his commission is looking to create a safe and reliable system. [FULL STORY]
