Content should be accessible for elderly and disabled persons
Use of plain language
Structures have to be easy to understand
Text-equivalents for audio-visual elements necessary
Utilization of standards
Web-Accessibility (<12>, p. 3)
Figure: Regional average of e-government readiness (2008)
Example: Germany
≈1000 administrative services available online (2008)

26% downloaded official forms (2007)
17% sent forms that were completed on the internet (2007)
10% of all income tax returns were completed and sent online (2007)

Across different functional walls
Databases across areas share information
One-stop shop for government services

Security (<8>, p. 3)
Without high level of privacy and security warranted,
e-government will not gain acceptance by stakeholders…
Electronic voting (e-voting) ≠ Internet voting (i-voting)
E-Voting: Concerns polling station technology, electronic machines at the place where voters come to take part in an election
I-Voting: Voting via internet. One of the most talked-about issue in participatory topics
USA: Prior to the 2000 presidential election, majority opposed to e-voting. Following the controversy in Florida, people started to favor e-voting (65% of respondents)
UK: 20% would vote online (2001)
1st adopted by Swiss canton Geneva (in 2004)
Higher voter participation expected
Remains controversial topic (due to prolonged privacy and security concerns)
5. E-Voting
