Recently, the websites of the electoral bodies of Brazil, Peru and Venezuela have been updated, not only to ease the search for information, and provide more services to citizens, but also to optimize the links relating to electronic voting.
The Brazilian Electoral Superior Court significantly altered its Website, and although it still does not provide the Spanish version, for now in Portuguese and English can take a tour of the legal, logistical, functional and online services concerning electoral matters of the country. A special link takes the user to the electronic voting, because in addition to fully explain the implications of automation (software and hardware), it provides a simulation of the voting machine for every visitor to experiment with electronic voting in Brazil.
In Venezuela, the National Electoral Council also amplified their information on electronic voting. Although the redesign of the website was completed several months ago, just days ago they enabled a new link that provides information on improvements to the automated voting system, passing through acquisition of new machines, biometric identification, and the renewal of the voting equipment.
Another country that went further in its online election information is Peru. The National Office of Electoral Processes, as well as making available to the public necessary links to learn about automated voting system tested for the first time last month, also created an additional website focused on electronic voting. The website is called Observatorio del Voto-E en Latinoamérica. It focuses on information concerning the Peruvian model, and intends to deepen the accomplishments that other countries in the region have met when they modernize their voting system.
The National Registry of Civil Status of Colombia, also published on their website information relating to electronic voting, and the new biometric identification system implemented to curb election fraud related to the identity of voters.
These four countries are moving forward in the electoral automation, and in the near future they will give surprises to the world thanks to their decision of providing a more reliable systems, when it comes to choosing their rulers.
