It is the season of elections in the Senior Citizens Councils around the Danish municipalities. This year, a far larger number of municipalities than previously have chosen to digitize the candidacy registration and validation, as well as the voting process. This is not least because of the recognition of a growth in trust between the senior citizens and digital participation.
Assembly Voting has provided solutions to more than twenty of the current elections in the Senior Citizens Councils. The preliminary experiences are indeed positive. This is partly because we find contested elections in almost every digitized municipality and partly because the digital turnout is significantly larger in the Senior Citizens Councils than only four years ago.
