This episode is largely about the groundwork that needs to occur in America in order to have widespread access to remote electronic voting. It’s a prologue, not the story itself.
42% of Estonians vote online. It took Estonia decades to accomplish this. The road to remote electronic voting in America will likely take years to implement as well. It requires changing America’s bureaucratic culture, establishing a secure national digital identity for citizens, providing for personal ownership of data and building a secure, transparent, distributed digital architecture for government services.
Join Matt and Marten for a fascinating discussion about how America can transfer the administrative functions of its distributed federalist form of government to a distributed digital architecture that shrinks bureaucratic friction and improves the quality of life for Americans.
