Amid growing threat to online voting systems after high-profile hacks like those at the Democratic National Committee, most voters are not comfortable with the idea of voting via the internet.

According to a Rasmussen Reports poll, which was conducted through telephone and online survey, only 29 percent of likely U.S. voters prefer online voting.

The result:

  • Favor online voting: 29 percent.
  • Oppose online voting: 59 percent.
  • Undecided: 12 percent.

About 26 states and the District of Columbia have opted for some form of online voting, according to a Fox News report.

In another case, Washington, D.C., is one of the areas that allow defense personnel and other voters residing overseas to email their votes.

The survey, which was conducted on September 12 and 13 had around 1,000 participants. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points.
