If you had to wait in long lines to vote on Tuesday, you may have thought for a moment or two about how convenient it would be to vote online.

That could be a reality in the District of Colombia.

D.C. is taking the first steps towards providing ballots over the Internet – specifically for military personnel stationed overseas who may not be able to get to the polls. But there are still roadblocks to overcome.

Rokey Suleman, the executive director of the D.C. Board of Elections and Ethics, told the DorobekINSIDER, that security concerns have forced a scale-back of the e-voting program.
