Today, the Federal Council granted three cantons initial authorization for the use of Swiss Post’s e- voting system. The e-voting system developed by Swiss Post will be used for the first time as part of the trial operation for votes in the cantons of Basel-Stadt, St. Gallen and Thurgau on 18 June 2023. This is a first for the new system and an important milestone for Swiss Post. However, work on the e-voting system has not yet been completed. Swiss Post will carry out ongoing developments to the system in future – and will continue to rely on the expertise of independent specialists.
