    Before

    § 1. All citizens and legal residents of Scotland, regardless of domiciliation status, shall be automatically registered to vote at 16 years of age, which cannot be revoked under any circumstances. Voting shall be conducted using the most modern technology available to assure 100% participation, and all citizens and legal residents shall be able to participate on all electoral levels.

    After

    § 1. All citizens and legal residents of Scotland, regardless of domiciliation status, shall be automatically registered to vote at 16 years of age, which cannot be revoked under any circumstances. Voting shall be conducted using the most modern technology available to assure 100% participation, and all citizens and legal residents shall be able to participate on all electoral levels.  Given the will to achieve 100% participation using modern technologies and electronic voting, internet access for all citizens shall be ensured. By these means, internet access will be granted the status of public good, and completely free to ensure everyone can vote. If the access to internet for all cannot be effective, local internet devices must be accessible for citizens for the duration of the voting period.

    Justification

    This amendment follows the pre-existing article. If everyone is to vote and it involves the most modern technologies, internet must be accessible for all. Even though most citizens have an internet access at home, it is not the case for all. No economic bias and inequality of treatment must prevent anyone from voting.
