CNET News: Estonia to hold first national Internet election

From CNET News:

"The Baltic state of Estonia plans to become the world's first country to allow voting in a national parliamentary election via the Internet next month... E-voting will be introduced for a parliamentary election on March 4, for the first time after it was used in more limited local elections in 2005. It is a fresh sign of Estonia's strong embrace of technology since it quit the Soviet Union in 1991."

Comment: Just in case you thought the US had a lock on innovative use of the Internet...
