Re: Online voting
This sentence from the article caught my eye: "Scytl products incorporate cryptographic protocols and end-to-end encryption for privacy and confidentiality during the voting process."
As the NSA revelations about crypto back doors and the current panic around Heartbleed demonstrate, it's really really hard to get tamper-proof cryptographic systems right. Even if the actual cryptography itself is solid, there are always systems around it, including the human element, where things can go wrong. I'm highly suspicious of Internet voting. Our current system isn't perfect, and will always have some measure of fraud, but it still seems better to me than moving it online.
