Abstract

Internet voting in the USA has a tragic history. It began in the year 2000. It worked so well that Congress approved a major project for the Department of Defense to provide website based Internet voting for overseas military. But the project was abruptly aborted, and the reputation of Internet voting suffered a blow from which it is yet to recover. In chronicling these events our discourse analysis shows how a coup d'état of the election administration function was executed through the control of Internet voting’s meaning.

Keywords: Internet voting, elections, discourse analysis
