Internet Voting

July 25, 2003  -- Posted at 7:11 a.m. CDT

LITTLE ROCK, Ark.  --Arkansas soldiers and other residents abroad will be among the first to test an Internet-based absentee voting system that could lead the way to more online casting of ballots by all voters.

The program was started by the Department of Defense as a way to find more a efficient and reliable means of making sure that deployed servicemen and women can vote.

A few dozen people participated in the program in the general election of 2000, and next year several hundred voters will participate in selected counties in ten states, including Arkansas.

Benton, Boone, Craighead, Crawford, Faulkner, Jefferson, Pulaski and Washington counties will participate in 2004.
