    If it exists, what is the official status for online voting?

    We all know that the technology exists and we all know that it has been used successfully for years with many small and large international organizations.

    Is this something that has been seriously considered and is in active discussion and or planning?

    Online voting is alive and well. http://www.iccsafe.org/cdpaccess

    This will be live starting in November of this year. I do believe that success will depend on how many of the ICC membership will embrace it.

    I can't wait for it to be used. Then we will need to examine any shortcomings. I plan to be at the hearings and also hope to use the remote. This is going to be a great step forward for ICC. I am a supporter and have call for this for years.

    Wonderful news! With ever shrinking budgets (and since American Idol can do it), the technology is there for voting member to use.

    thanks Jim.

    Welcome news. Also, it will be interesting to see in what ways we have yet to imagine that the new democracy will become corrupted by special interest groups.

    I do believe it is safe to say that lobbying tactics will change and would find it hard to imagine that industry is not already working on this as well as others.
