A new survey has found that 45% of the UK public support online voting at UK elections and referendums.

The figure increased to nearly half (49%) among 18-34 year-olds, although only 37% of aged 55 and over felt the same way.

Interestingly, more men than women supported the idea, with nearly half (49%) of men strongly supporting or slightly supporting online voting, compared to 42% of women.

Around three in ten people oppose online voting, increasing to 40% among the over 55s, while around a fifth of all those surveyed didn’t express strong feelings either way.
