Disruption of online vote in Martinique

June 23, 2023


The platform for the online vote on a flag and anthem for the French overseas department of Martinique had to be taken offline, on January 4, 24 hours after the start of the vote. The reason for the disruption was reported to be a cyberattack.

The attack on government servers upended a nearly two-week online voting window that began on Jan. 2. Officials said the attack was not successful but forced them to temporarily shut down the system.
