Conclusion

After its lengthy and minutely detailed discussion, Germany's Supreme Court upheld the constitutionality of this election. The inadequacy of the agency regulation, and the shortcomings of the machines, were harmless errors.

This opinion, upholding paperless electronic voting in Germany, has far-reaching implications. The arguments and conclusions made in that opinion can also be applied to the use of Internet voting Ś another form of paperless electronic voting. Thus, this ruling paves the way for Internet voting in Germany.

While German law, of course, has no precedent value in the US, it can have considerable persuasive value. That is, the legal reasoning and conclusions of the German Supreme Court can be a model for US courts and law-makers to emulate.

In short, this opinion may one day prove to be a milestone in the history of Internet voting in the US.
