Of the many nations that have implemented some measure of digital democracy, none perhaps has had more success than Estonia, Stanford Engineering writes.
Estonian digitization began with schools and banking in the 1990s. Online voting followed in the early 2000s. Today, a third of Estonians vote online. Faith in the system is high, Ilves says. The country has a single voter registry and voters can confirm — and even change — their votes right up to the deadline. Estonia’s latest effort is a comprehensive genome project that will fuel a new era of personalized medicine.
