The development of reliable and safe e-voting systems is relevant because of the wide range of applications. This paper provides an analysis of modern electronic voting systems based on security criteria. An analysis was conducted based on the most popular modern e-voting system architectures. The analysis provides a baseline for developing a secure e-voting system.
