April 7, 2009

The file contains two documents from Feb 2009 relating to E-voting at Austrian Universities. The first document, spanning 14 pages, was created for the "Wahlkommission" (electoral commission), while the second part, 53 pages, are only handed out to "Vorsitzende", the heads of the electoral commission. According to the source it was produced by the Ministry of Science (Bundesministerium fuer Wissenschaften) and released in the context of the May 2009 Austrian student union elections

The source states that it was leaked because they believe that "e-voting is against the constitution and - although this is technically speaking not directly related to the voting process - this document should be available to the public, because if this fact would be a threat to the election process, than probably this new election process should not be conducted."
