Abstract: In the recent Scottish elections, an e-counting system was employed to manage the increased complexity of the Scottish electoral system. The elections were also the first to allow members of the public to register as election observers, accredited by the Electoral Commission. This paper discusses some of the issues that arose during observations made by the authors as observers, relating to the use of the new e-counting system.
