Years ahead of schedule, the next UK General Election is almost here. Come Thursday, millions across the land will be having their say on the future of our great country and hundreds of parliamentary constituencies will elect a Member of Parliament to the House of Commons.
Unless you've already registered to vote by post, or by proxy, that means braving the weather and heading down to your local polling station between the hours of 7am and 10pm.
Fascinating times, yet from a technology standpoint it is somewhat surprising that the voting system has managed to withstand the digital revolution that has transformed so many aspects of modern life. Come Thursday, voters will use pen or pencil to mark a cross on a piece of paper, and the votes will be counted by hand shortly after the polling stations close.
Campaigners have long argued that electronic solutions such as touchscreens at polling stations or remote systems with ID verification would reduce costs and potentially increase voter turnout, particularly among young people. Yet voting at the 2017 General Election is one of those rare tasks where you actually can say "there isn't an app for that."
A digital solution would no doubt raise genuine concerns over security and potential fraud, but it's an interesting topic with far-reaching ramifications, so let us know what you think: should the UK introduce online voting, and would such an option make you more likely to vote?
