Abstract—Electronic voting as a subset of e-government, not only for election’s cost but also for its vastness, has been concerned by governments. Although, governments have tried to implement e-voting services through their countries, but such developing countries; like Iran, have to mention not only copying technological solutions and paying huge amount of money for buying equipment and infrastructure, but also social and cultural challenges that their country will face with them. In this paper, the social and cultural challenges of implementing e-voting services in Iran have been survived by dimensions of GLOBE national culture. The social and cultural challenges are: lack of transparency, Trust and finally weakness of Change management in which these challenges are illustrated that implementing e-voting services in Iran would face with important difficulties.
Index Terms—E-Voting, GLOBE project, national culture.
