Voters in U.Okay. Cast Ballots Online, in Test for Internet Voting

LONDON—Members of the U.Okay.’s ruling Conservative Social gathering who’re voting to determine the nation’s subsequent prime minister are for the primary time casting ballots on-line in a management election, a rarity amongst democracies cautious of web voting due to cybersecurity issues

Over a several-week interval, the social gathering is providing web voting alongside voting by mail, partly to offer larger comfort throughout August weeks when Britons take trip and to keep away from disruptions by placing postal staff. The outcomes are to be introduced Sept. 5.
