The EU is drafting e-voting standards. I haven't checked out what the EU is doing exactly, but that may be interesting. link: http://www.coe.int/t/dgap/democracy/activities/GGIS/E-voting/

Importantly, member states will need to comply.

Estonia doesn't want to.

Estonia's internet voting system should not be used for the European elections in May because its security vulnerabilities could lead to faked votes or totals, say independent researchers.

The flaws were discovered by a team who were accredited to observe the October 2013 municipal elections. They said they observed election officials downloading key software over insecure internet connections, typing PINs and passwords in view of cameras, and preparing election software on insecure PCs. They have reported their findings to the Estonian government, but had had no response by Monday.

Lithuania seems more enthused. MEP for Lithuania meets with director of the World Wide Web Consortium
