Looking_glasslinuxworld_1That the Baltic state of Estonia plans to become the world's first country to allow voting in a national parliamentary election via the Internet next month-signaling the nation's strong embrace of technology since it quit the Soviet Union in 1991. E-voting will be introduced for a parliamentary election on March 4. The e-voting system was tested earlier this week, including the chance to choose the "king of the forest".
