Abstrakt

The aim of this paper is to contribute to the scholarly debate about potential perception, use, and impact of mobile, digital communication devices and their various forms of applications in democratic processes and actions. The focus is on young Danes’ willingness to vote in general elections from their mobile (smart)phones. Would they consider voting or not? Why or why not? What do the findings tell us about the trust or distrust in digital (mobile) technologies? And what do the findings tell us about young people, mobile opportunities and perceptions of democracy and actions of exercising the most basic democratic rights? The paper provides evidence and arguments to a critical discussion of the role of mobile (smart)phones, in processes of change regarding how we think, why we think as we do, and how we act as citizens and individuals (Coleman & Blumler 2009; Hacker & van Dijk 2000).
