After the online voting to choose the candidates for the Parliamentary elections for the Lower and Upper Houses and for the Regional elections for Lombardy, yesterday saw the conclusion of the online voting to choose a candidate for the position of mayor of Rome as well as the 48 candidates for the positions as councillors. The 5 Star MoVement’s candidate for the position of mayor of Rome Marcello De Vito. He’s 38 years old; he has a degree in jurisprudence and he was born in Rome where he grew up. All the results can be accessed here. There were 2,383 people who had the right to vote. These people had signed up to the M5S with digitalised documents. 3,039 preferences were expressed for the choice of mayor and 3,222 preferences were expressed for the choice of councillors. The practice of having online elections to choose the people to represent citizens is catching on slowly. It’s a tool for democratic choices, for direct democracy. A trustworthy system for online voting is just the first tool available to citizens to make their choices in an immediate and direct way.
