Since the project was launched, more than 300 trials with e-voting have been conducted at federal level. In addition, there have been numerous trials at cantonal and municipal level.
Catalogue of measures by the Confederation and cantons
The key element of the redesign of the online voting trials is a continuous improvement process. The Confederation and the cantons maintain a joint catalogue of measures with the purpose of ensuring this continuous improvement process and the security of e-voting. The latest developments are taken into account and known need for action is addressed. The catalogue of measures, which is continuously reviewed, adapted and published, contains the planned developments in the field of e-voting and any need for action identified. A schedule for implementing the measures is provided where possible.
The Vote électronique Steering Committee has adopted the following catalogue of measures for the resumption of trials in June 2023:

Risk assessment by the Federal Chancellery
As part of the redesign of trials, each actor now prepares their own assessment of the risks associated with e-voting in their particular area of responsibility. The Federal Chancellery's risk assessment addresses the risks associated with e-voting that have national implications.
The Federal Chancellery's risk assessment for the resumption of trials in June 2023 is available in German and French.
