A Woman Who Proved That Young People Don't Hate Elections And Referendums. She Started it All Online
Bratislava, November 14, 2016 - she was the first woman ever elected as a Chancellor of the Swiss Canton of Geneva. She is at the forefront of one of the most cosmopolitan small republics in Europe, where new online services for citizens grow literally like mushrooms after the rain. Anja Wyden Guelpa - a young, only 42 year old sympathetic woman who is gradually changing the habits of the population related to the traditional voting and impresses Genevians living abroad.
Anja Wyden Guelpa has managed in her own country and in a relatively short time to introduce electronic voting to elections and referendums. She increased also in other areas of operation of the Canton the strength of public opinion and the voice of its citizens thanks to efficient, simple and modern IT tools. She has been able to attract not only young people, who are traditionally avoiding elections, but also to use the enthusiasm of those who live abroad, but still want to influence the situation in their country. How did she manage to make life easier for voters this way? What do the voters say? How the country's leadership should reflect electronic elections?
Anja Wyden Guelpa will discuss on how e-elections change a country and the people's thinking together with other speakers in the opening block of the two-day international ITAPA Conference on November 15, 2016 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel Bratislava.
