Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Entertainment E-Radio E-radio also called internet radio is an audio broadcasting service transmitted via the internet. To use internet radio you would need a broadband connection which runs at a suitable speed connection. This is because some internet audio streams run at bit rate levels of 128kbps. Internet radio also requires software to be used such as windows media player. Internet radio provides a better quality audio than traditional radio station broadcasts as it uses more modern audio formats such as WMA, AAC and Ogg Vorbis than that which is used with DAB radio. The massive advantage of internet radio stations rather than traditional radio station broadcasts is that internet radio has no geographical boundary. Internet radio stations are usually accessible from anywhere in the world, this makes it a popular service as people can access radio from all over the world not just local radio stations. Internet radio is not just limited to accessing from the internet you can also now access it from car radios, PDA's and even on your mobile phone. ...read more.

Conclusion

* Using this method votes can be counted far more quickly so final election results are produces faster. * E-Voting allows people with disabilities to cast a vote on their in a private and secure manner. Risks in e-voting: * E-voting using the internet is done by public networks meaning it is far more difficult to identify the caster of a vote this way than current methods. * More difficult to identify any technical malfunctions. * The system fails to record enough back ups of voting information therefore if the system would fail it would be very difficult to do a 'recount' of votes. In May 2003, pilot schemes to test new methods of voting took place in 59 local authorities across England. In the experiment 6.4 million people were eligible to vote in these pilot areas. Schemes offered electors the chance to cast a vote electronically this was done in a variety of different of ways and included the Internet, by telephone, via text messaging and for the first time through interactive digital television.
