The Coronavirus Desease (Covid-19) pandemic creates a new life order, one of which is the use of technology to be a necessity, people are massively literate of online-based information technology, with the literacy of society in the use of technology to support the discourse of implementing the e-election system for elections in regional heads in Indonesia. This e-pilkada option is an alternative solution for regional head elections that is more affordable, faster, and more practical. On the other hand, implementing e-pilkada is not merely a matter of changing ballots to electronic ballots, but also about the validity and security of electronic transactions, legal products, infrastructure, public readiness, effectiveness of control mechanisms, and public awareness. Based on the data that has been mentioned above, a comprehensive study is needed on the opportunities and challenges of implementing electronic Pilkada (e-Pilkada)/ e-voting in Indonesia. Therefore, the aim of this research is to analyze the opportunities and challenges in the future of e-Pilkada in Indonesia.
