Written Answers — House of Lords: Electoral Pilots: Electronic Counting (20 May 2004)

Lord Rooker: Electronic counting can take two forms. First, where votes have been cast electronically, e.g. through the Internet or telephone, they are counted electronically automatically. The second form is the electronic counting of ballot papers. The table lists those local authorities that have piloted this latter form of electronic counting since May 2000: Year Name of Local Authority Comments...

Written Ministerial Statements — Deputy Prime Minister: Electoral Pilots (23 Jan 2003)

Nick Raynsford: The electoral pilot programme is a key part of the Government's efforts to modernise our electoral system. It will allow us to test the robustness of new voting methods, including e-voting, and build public confidence in them. In conjunction with the Electoral Commission and the Local Government Association, we have invited local authorities in England and Wales to take part in this programme...

Written Answers — Transport, Local Government and the Regions: Electoral Modernisation (5 Feb 2002)

Nick Raynsford: I have today agreed that 30 local authorities will pilot new methods of voting at local and mayoral elections this May. These electoral modernisation pilots build on the 2000 local election pilots and will test new and easier arrangements, such as early voting, all postal ballots and mobile ballot kiosks. The earlier successes of postal voting ensure it will play a key role in the pilot...

European Parliamentary and Local Elections (Pilots) Bill: New Clause 3 — Additional provisions in respect of electronic voting (16 Dec 2003)

Chris Leslie: We have heard that new clauses 3, 4 and 7 would prevent e-voting pilots from taking place unless certain security and contingency measures are in place. Similar amendments were tabled in Standing Committee, but they were not debated. It may be helpful if I set out our latest thinking. Electronic voting methods have been used successfully at the local level in nine authorities in 2002 and in...

Scottish Parliament: Question Time — Scottish Executive: Elections (Turnout) (27 Nov 2003)

Tricia Marwick: I associate myself with Nora Radcliffe's remarks, but I take the minister back to the subject of e- voting. Is he aware that research by the Electoral Reform Society into the e-pilots that were conducted earlier this year in England concluded that e-voting—whether by telephone, internet, text or digital TV—does not significantly raise turnout? Will the minister give an assurance that, if...

Public Bill Committee: European Parliamentary and Local Elections (Pilots) Bill: Clause 2 - Pilot order (4 Nov 2003)

Mr Nick Hawkins: The Electoral Reform Society, an important body on which MPs of all parties and the general public have relied for objective advice for many years, says that there is no point in pressing ahead with e-voting because of technological failures. It says that e-voting has not increased turnout in the pilot areas. Indeed, the methods used were clearly not secure, two numbers being sent together on...

Bills Presented — Public Debt Management Bill: Clause 9 — Piloting registration provision (25 Jun 2012)

Angela Smith: Again, my hon. Friend makes a valuable point. I represent the city of Sheffield and the borough of Barnsley in Parliament. As anybody who knows south Yorkshire will be aware, it is probably one of the hilliest areas in the country; Sheffield is probably the hilliest city in Great Britain. As my hon. Friend is well aware, it is built on seven hills; there are constant arguments about who lives...

European Parliamentary and Local Elections (Pilots) Bill (21 Oct 2003)

Bill Cash: My hon. Friend also makes a valuable point. I hope the Minister takes it on board the fact that we are making a serious and useful contribution. E-voting in the 2004 elections could entail remote voting by telephone, text messaging, SMS, digital TV and internet. As the region adopting e-voting will also be an all-postal system, voting electronically in a polling station will not be relevant....

Written Answers — Justice: Electronic Voting (23 Oct 2008)

Michael Wills: No. The Government do not plan to introduce e-voting for the 2009 European or local elections. The way forward more generally on e-voting will be informed by the valuable experience gained from earlier pilots, analysis of the responses to the election day consultation, and further development work including the possible further testing of e-voting solutions in non-statutory elections.

A further 20 applications were submitted by councils wishing to run e-voting...

Trade Union Bill: Provision for electronic balloting: review and piloting scheme (27 Apr 2016)

Kevan Jones: I am interested to hear what the Minister says about that. The last Labour Government piloted e-voting, and the Electoral Commission report afterwards indicated that there was no evidence of fraud or other things, but what did for it was the scandal around postal voting in certain areas. There was no evidence in the report that e-voting was any more corrupt or inefficient than any other type...

Chris Skidmore: The Government notes the recommendations in WebRoots Democracy report. This is an important issue that we take seriously.
