Participating in voting by integrating digital innovations
Instead of receiving voting letters, like in the past, citizens simply follow a link sent to their smartphone by the government. After an automatic face recognition security check, citizens activate their personal voting account, where they receive access to brief and objective informational videos, explaining the subjects being voted upon, as well as the pros and cons of voting for or against them. After watching the informational videos, citizens may either directly vote or access more in-depth information about the relevant topics.
