Authentic and anonymous voting and opinion-expression from home

Vision
The solution to be introduced will allow citizens to be able to exercise their
rights from home, and to participate in decisions regarding local cases. It
also allows local governments to let citizens make decisions and to discover
their opinions regarding certain cases.
To make all this possible, the solution provides interactive, authentic and
anonymous opinion-expression for citizens, on multiple channels.
Thus, the solution allows citizens to vote:
• at local governmental body- and board sessions,
• at public hearings,
• at regulation plans,
• about concepts.
Furthermore, it can carry out polls in local governmental and miscellaneous
questions easily and quickly. The poll can be representative (by choosing a
predefined sample of local residents by age, sex, educational level, and
residence) or freely accessible (for maximizing the number of voters).
As a result of using the solution, local citizens would get involved in
decisions in significantly increased rate, which would allow for a more
accurate display of citizens’ demands, whereas citizens would become more
satisfied, also, their confidence in local decision-makers and politicians
would improve.
Technical background
The solution is authentic, anonymous, and accessible on multiple channels.
What
does this mean?
• Authentic: only local citizens and predefined communities can take part in
the individual votings  the solution only provides access for these groups.
The
solution uses technology of today’s highest security level (e.g. electronic
signatures). Access to individual cases can be restricted based on data of
stored attributes of citizens, for designated citizen groups (i.e. for
residents of a given city district or voting group; local entrepreneurs; or
those involved in other ways). 
• Anonymous: although citizens are authenticated, they can only vote and
express opinions anonymously. This fact can improve participation rate
considerably. In spite of anonymity, statistics of apportionment can be
made by
assessing compositions by sex, age, city of residence, educational level, and
other stored attributes of citizens.
• Multiple channel: the solution is accessible from computers, smartphones and
also smart-televisions. Through these channels local hearings, residential
orientation and other events can be broadcasted, and connected with voting;
the
full circle of voters can be accessed in their preferred time, and votes
can be
requested from them without temporal and spatial barriers. Of course voting
and
polls can also be organized independently. An integrated part of the solution
is the mobile electronic signature and the use of NFC (Near Field
Communication) devices. The solution can be integrated into the popular social
networking sites.
Advantages
The solution has various advantages compared to present voting and polling
methods:
• The expression of opinions can be controlled, so it must not be feared that
the researcher receives irrelevant, impetuous, or unrealistic opinions, as the
possible answers can be predefined like in a test. This cannot in all cases
replace personal and free-flow civil opinion-expression, though can complement
it usefully.
• The results of the polls are instantly available after due date, and can be
tracked throughout its course.
• The execution of individual polls and researches are highly cost-efficient.
Practically, it does not involve any additional costs following its
implementation and aside of general maintenance.
• The solution can be integrated into existing citycard systems improving the
acceptance and efficiency of those.
• The innovational content of the solution is that it enables the use of
currently widespread or spreading communicational and opinion-expression
channels and makes them eligible to be the real means of eDemocracy by
integrating anonymity and authenticity to the these mediums.  
Additional uses
In addition to using the solution for voting and opinion-expression for
citizens, it is usable for other user circles and at other usage areas:
• Distance voting for representatives: the solution can also be used by
representatives  they can take part in important votings should they not be
able to attend due to other matters or sick leave.
• Electronic purchasing, tendering, auctions: decision regarding incoming
offers may be completely anonymous, while the winning bidder may be revealed
genuinely. The circle of authorized bidders can be narrowed.
• Voting at elections: electronic votings are used in more and more places all
over the world. This solution is also capable of carrying out local authority,
minority autonomy and even parliamentary elections.
• Censuses: the solution is capable of carrying out local and national
censuses,
• The solution may also be used by local parties, civil social organizations
and chambers for carrying out own votings and/or researches (in case an
agreement is made with the local authority).
• The data storage built from anonymous data can be an excellent device for
statistical data collection.
