An Actor-Network Theory (ANT) is a well-known theory in the information system area. This approach is employed to capture actors, heterogeneous networks, and power relations. In Indonesia, there is a presidential regulation number 95 of 2018 about electronic government system. This regulation set all of the e-government implementation in Indonesia, such as governance, management, information technology audit, the organizer, acceleration, monitoring, and evaluation. Many e-government research using ANT for a theoretical lens, however, there is limited research in Indonesia districts. Therefore, this research aims to apply ANT in eGovernment case studies in two districts in Indonesia. The first case study is conducted at a district of East Java in 2018 and the second one in a district of Lampung in 2019. Both cases have different social, economic, cultural, and political contexts, even though in one country, Indonesia. The first case study is an established district and another one is the new district. This research captures the global and local network actors as well as classifies their power over the e-government implementation in both cases. The results show that different contexts produce different results and achievements in e-Government implementation. The dominant factor in the e-Government success factor is the commitment of the district head. It has an impact on the strategy to implement e-Government.
