Aberdeen could become the first city in the country to use an electronic voting system for elections, thanks to a new smart card, reports The Herald (p6).

The Accord Card is at the heart of a project to deliver e-government to Aberdonians, and the city's bid for£3.4m of Scottish executive funding under the modernising government programme has just won through to the next round.

It is one of 46 from 104 initial applicants asked to carry out further work on their bids. The card, which is intended to be available to Aberdeen's entire 220,000 population, will be used for leisure facilities, libraries, buses, vending machines, city centre parking, retail facilities and electronic voting.
