A TERRIBLE IDEA: The Internet Is No Place For Elections: It’s not safe to connect our voting infrastructure to the Internet, but some election boards are doing it anyway. “Nevertheless, 32 states and the District of Columbia allow at least some absentee voters (in most cases just voters who live overseas or serve in the military) to return their completed ballots using poorly secured e-mail, Internet-connected fax machines, or websites. In the most extreme example, all voters in Alaska are allowed to return their completed ballots over a supposedly secure website. And there is a danger that Internet voting could expand.”
Paper ballots all the way, baby.
