UK.gov ditches 'Big Brother'-style e-voting
Rounding on the Government Oliver Heald MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Constitutional Affairs, described the Government's e-voting plans as
"reckless" and "insecure".
"The Government must retain the tried and trusted ballot box as the foundation of British democracy.
"Restoring public confidence in our electoral system is more important than spending taxpayers' money on 'Big Brother' text messaging gimmicks.
"This lack of an adequate audit trail is extremely worrying in the light of the risk of fraud already exposed with all-postal voting," he said.
Looks like your elected seem to be ahead of the intellectual train...
Hopefully the elected in the us of a will pick up on this as well.
