Voting technologies should work correctly.
- The e-voting system shall contain measures to preserve the availability of its services during the e-voting process. It shall resist, in particular, malfunction, breakdowns or denial of service attacks.
- Furthermore, the system’s transparency must be guaranteed in the sense that it must be possible to check that it is functioning properly.
- NVT systems are intended to fulfil the same functions as paper-based or mechanical systems and must, therefore, meet the same standards that apply to these systems.
