INTERNET voting is a method of casting ballots in an election where voters do so through the internet. According to the International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance (International IDEA), internet voting refers to "the use of the internet to cast a vote, receive information about the election, register to vote or participate in other electoral processes. This includes voting by mail or by phone, but the focus is on voting over the internet (" This can be done through a web-based platform or an electronic voting system. The goal of internet voting is to increase voter turnout and make the voting process more convenient for citizens.

Internet voting can be done through different mechanisms such as remote voting, phone voting and others. Likewise, there are different ways to implement internet voting, such as remote internet voting, where the voter accesses the voting system remotely; and local internet voting, where the voter accesses the voting system at a designated location.
