The upcoming electoral reforms seem to largely rely on the utilization of electronic means. Despite the fact that the draft text on the reforms has yet to be published, its authors are assuming that the introduction of certain electronic components into the voting system in Armenia will solve most of the existing problems and guarantee free and fair elections. However, as proven by both international and Armenian experiences, electronic voting cannot be considered a panacea and can only solve very narrow issues at best. Most of the time, the introduction of certain electronic components in the voting system brings on new problems and difficulties, as has been the case with the introduction of internet voting in Armenia after 2011.
