OSCE also recommends Estonia to document more thoroughly different processes involving e-voting and to increase public’s awareness of different nuances of e-voting.
According to the report, e-voting has in general received high level of confidence from the public and has been organised in a professional and secure manner by the Government’s Elections Committee.
The organisation noted that the Riigikogu elections were carried out in compliance with the international standards and agreements and by involving all parties in equal manner. OSCE estimated that Estonian Elections Act allows for democratic elections to be carried out and valued highly the organisational part of the elections.
