International delegation observes electronic voting in Brussels

A delegation of international observers is in Brussels today to look at how the more than half a million voters in the capital vote electronically. Voters in Brussels have been voting using computers since 1994.  

On Friday the Brussels-Capital Region announce that a team made-up of observers from Estonia, Ukraine, Tunisia, South Korea and Canada would be in the capital for the municipal vote.

A team from the regional authority is accompanying the observers to polling stations in Jette, Sint-Jans-Molenbeek and Sint-Lambrechts-Woluwe.   

Voters in the whole of the Brussels-Capital Region, the 9 municipalities that make up the German-Speaking Community and 163 Flemish municipalities in the 5 Flemish provinces are voting electronically. Voters elsewhere in Belgium are voting using traditional paper ballot slips.
