Dataset: Internettvalg 2013

Abstract

In the spring of 2013 the Institute for Sosial Research (ISF) commissioned by the Ministry of Local Government and Modernisation to lead the evaluation of the second attempt with voting via the Internet in Norway. This time voters in 12 selected municipalities would get the opportunity to vote via the Internet by the parliamentary elections in 2013. The mission meant essentially a follow-up of the survey-based part of the evaluation in 2011, as well as some detailed issues. The experiment with voting via the Internet in the local elections in 2011 would be repeated and expanded by the parliamentary elections in 2013.
