Citizens everywhere are continuously demanding to be given the chance to participate more in the democratic process. Mobile technology is seen as a new method to fulfill such a demand. A remote voting using mobile device is considered an effectual way in enabling citizens to get involved in the voting process, especially in developing countries. In spite of the the perceived benefits of applying m-voting, it is not widely used by governments in several countries. This chapter identifies the factors that affect citizens' intentions of adopting a mobile voting system by introducing a prototype of an m-voting system to citizens in Egypt. Findings show that ease of use, usefulness, trust, and mobility have significant impact on citizens' willingness to use an m-voting system.
