    RIES stands for Rijnland Internet Election System. It is an online voting system that was developed by one of the Dutch local authorities on water management. The system has been used twice in the fall of 2004 for in total approximately two million potential voters. In this paper we describe how this system works. Furthermore we do not only describe how the outcome of the elections can be verified but also how it has been verified by us. To conclude the paper we describe some possible points for improvement.
