OSCE Report on Swiss 2011 Elections Published

The OSCE/ODIHR observed the Swiss assembly elections of October 23, 2011. Their findings ara available now. In the management summary it is stated that

"[...] The pilot systems performed reliably and enjoyed widespread trust. Nonetheless, there appeared to be some weaknesses in the systems, including both legal and technical issues. The systems would benefit from improvements in certification, security, transparency, and oversight." (Swiss Confederation, Federal Assembly Elections 23 October 2011, OSCE/ODIHR Election Assessment Mission Report, page 2)

It is interesting to note that the OSCE/ODIHR, too, considers transparency as a must-have property of remote e-voting systems.
