网络 and Mobile E-voting App Digitizes Swiss Politics

Riehen is a municipality near Basel in 瑞士. Riehen's parliament needed a voting solution to increase transparency over the 投票s of the individuals and simplify the counting process.

网络 Essentials created a web and mobile app to replace a traditional show of hands voting process with a cutting-edge digital solution. Live-casting provides real-time results, transparency and information to all 投票rs and viewers.

影响 & 结果


The real-time display of the voting process and the subsequent publication of detailed results promotes public confidence in politics and makes voting behavior transparent

Decreases Administrative Overhead

结合, the mobile and web app reduce the resources, time and effort needed to coordinate, 投票, 发布并分析结果


The solution is made up of multiple digital tools customized for the different stakeholders: the administration, 代表, 公众和媒体


    • 管理和使用简单
    • Provide immediate ballot results
    • Ensure no abuse can happen before, during and after a 投票
    • 控制出勤
    • Allow easy export of results for wider publication
    • Provide chronological documentation of ballot results



      Real-time data display helps achieve the client's goal of increased transparency and speeds up the voting process

      • After the general secretary releases a question to the chamber, attendees get a real-time view of how many 投票s have been cast for each option
      • A 20 second countdown for each question creates urgency and decreases the time spent on each 投票
      • 在投票之后, individual results are displayed to all on a large screen and the tablets and the president can quickly make a deciding 投票 if needed



      This project involved introducing technology into a traditional system. Early user adoption was vital for the long-term success of the app. 

      • The web app interface where the General Secretary prepares and controls the meeting is highly flexible and user-friendly. He uses it to release questions and results to the participants during the session and quickly export an Excel report after the meeting
      • The mobile app the delegates use to 投票 is simple, logical and easy to use. As soon a question is released, they are prompted to 投票 "yes”, “no”, “A”, “B” or “abstain”. A confirmation screen after each 投票 ensures that representatives don't 投票 incorrectly by accident. 


      The system had to be tamper-proof to address concerns about e-voting security

      • Participants receive a tablet on arrival, and identify themselves in the voting app. 作为一种安全措施, they only can log in if the tablet has been authorized for the meeting and nobody else is logged in with their unique ID.

      网络 Essentials解决方案, developed in an exciting process with the Riehen General Secretary offers ease of use, reliability in the determination of results and transparency with regard to the voting behaviour of parliamentarians

            Using Tech in a Traditional Field

            Digitalization of democratic processes is a large and somewhat controversial topic. We managed to create a flexible product that can be adapted and that creates trust amongst the politicians who are using the app.

            Welcoming digitalization into a traditional democratic system strengthens Riehen's reputation as a forward-thinking and innovative local government.


            概念的发展, business analysis and early user testing took place in 瑞士 with the client and our Swiss team. Our German-Cambodian project manager enabled easy communication between the German speaking client and our technical experts in Cambodia.


            网络 Essentials was founded in Riehen. It's inspiring to see how our team in Cambodia can have positive impact on the local community that has supported and invested in them.

            I am proud and excited to be a part of the innovative team that digitizes politics in Riehen. One of my personal highlights was the easy collaboration between Riehen’s local commune, our team on the ground in 瑞士 and our Cambodian technical team. Efficiency and transparency were our unwavering focus, and the final solution delivers this and more.
