It is quite clear what the citizens want!
The campaign of the Coalition for Free and Fair Elections “Pod lupom”, pertaining to Introduction of New Technologies in the Election Process in BiH, resulted in 70,000 signatures of citizens demanding to prevent election theft and election fraud by introducing electronic voters’ identification and machines to scan voting ballots.
Members of the Coalition “Pod lupom” remind citizens that the introduction of new technologies would restore the trust of citizens in the elections, but also contribute to increasing transparency in the election process. The introduction of ballot scanning machines would prevent electoral fraud, which are reflected in changing voting results through nullification votes for political opponents, voting instead of non-voters or fraudulent addition of personal votes. In addition, a better post-election analysis and the so-called election forensics by the election administration, observers and all participants in the election process would be provided. Depending on the technology used, it would be able to obtaine election results just few hours or minutes after closing of the polling stations. Electronic voter identification would prevent abuses related to the identity of the voters, such as voting on behalf of another person, multiple voting and abuse of voting after clossing of the polling stations and also it would be possible to monitor voter turnout in real time.
The Coalition “Pod lupom”, along with more than 60 CSOs, will realize signing a petition in more than 70 cities and municipalities in BiH by the end of 2021. The petition can also be signed online by clicking on the link: https://podlupom.org/peticija/
The Coalition “Pod lupom” thanks the citizens for their trust and recognition of the importance of the campaign to introduce new technologies in the election process, and invites them to sign a petition if not yet, either in their local communities or online.
