The general mantra is that digitisation is necessary to make companies and public administration more efficient. In both cases, more efficient ideally means better, faster, and more convenient; what it also usually implies is cheaper. In this paper we focus on the public side of the issue, namely on the topic of democracy. We also consideraspects of the polling system. For instance, e-voting should help increase poll participation and promote inclusion, however, it also has its pitfalls.
