11.59 Toti: “Low turnout is an endemic problem”

The president of the Liguria region, Giovanni Toti, on the sidelines of the Assagenti assembly, comments on the low turnout at the polls.
11.32 am Brescia: “Against electronic voting abstention”
“After this electoral round, Minister Lamorgese cannot limit himself to attacking – albeit with all reasons – the defections of seat presidents in Palermo. In view of the elections politics requires a serious reflection on how to vote in Italy also to combat involuntary abstention “. This was stated by Giuseppe Brescia (M5s), chairman of the Constitutional Affairs Commission of the Chamber.” “In a mobile society – he adds – nailing the vote of the voters to the place of residence is madness. Abolishing the paper voting card thanks to technology is an obligation. Testing alternative voting solutions on a voluntary basis – from early voting, to post office, to electronic voting – is not a heresy “.
