This paper presents a Web-based, database-oriented application called “Electronic Polling”, a smart way to support voting on common subjects in which all people of a Local Authority are interested. The systems services were planned and implemented to be easily expandable. The application is based on state-of-the-art software platform, integrating WWW and database. The system aims to become a pilot in future efforts relative with “on line Democracy”. The system provides the capability to create a poll, view the subject and participate to the voting procedure. Only authorised users can participate to use the system to vote or create a poll but all users can view results from previous voting procedures.
