The aim is to encourage more specialists to get involved in the technical analysis of the software. It is hoped that public overview will help to ensure the security of the system.

E-voting has been successfully used 5 times in Estonia since 2007. It facilitates national ID cards which are obligatory for all citizens. In the next municipal elections later this year it is planned to test an experimental feature where the voter can check via a physically separate channel (smart phone) if his or her vote has been registered correctly.

The original in Estonian: http://www.postimees.ee/1297368/e-haaletamise-tarkvara-lahtekood-sai-avalikuks

The publicized source code: https://github.com/vvk-ehk/evalimine"
