Abstract: 

With regards to ICT initiatives and wide application of these technologies in offering services to citizens, E-government development is passing to its final phases. Hence, application of ICT in the area of elections is a strategic necessity. This study uses factor analysis to discover prerequisites of E-elections in Iran. The study integrates constructs from literature to develop a model of assessment. A survey is administered to 197 electoral administrators. The data is analyzed using factor analysis. The study only explores the perceptions of electoral administrators. Future studies could use the model to assess perceptions of a more diverse pool of citizens. Results indicate that electronic governance, technological infrastructure, human resource, Security, and Reliability mechanisms are prerequisites to run a successful electronic-voting system in Iran. The model explains 60 percent of the variance in implementation of an e-voting system. Government should emphasize the benefits of electronic voting to citizens. If government follows a step-by step program to develop appropriate mechanisms with regards to findings of this research, e-voting may be influential enough to motivate people to participate in the election process. The findings of this study also lay the foundation for future studies on e-voting adoption.
