Companies Test Online Voting

Two Internet companies are conducting the first national "presidential primary" to enable all eligible U.S. voters to register online and then vote during a six-day period beginning Dec. 3.

Garden City, N.Y.-based Votation.com Inc. (www.votation.com) and New York-based Politics.com Inc. (www.politics.com) have joined forces to produce the mock primary, which will run from Friday, Dec. 3 to Wednesday, Dec. 8. Results will be available on the morning of Dec. 9.

Registration began last week at the Politics.com Web site, and the companies are planning to hold Internet votes before each major event in the upcoming election year, including the Iowa caucus, the New Hampshire primary, the party conventions and Election Day.
