Have You Seen This E-Voting System?? What Do You Think??
Advertisements [?]
" . . . voting systems designer David Bismark may have a solution.

* * * * *

"In his system, everyone gets a ballot with an encrypted barcode on it. On one side of the ballot is the list of candidates in a random order, and on the other are the checkboxes. When you vote, you rip it in half and keep the ordered list of candidates and turn in the half with the checkboxes and your barcode. You turn in that half and election workers scan it into the system.

"You can then take your half home and verify your votes online. And once the election is complete, the votes are decrypted "in several steps, spread among different organisations, and the plain-text, countable votes can then be tallied."

"This system makes it impossible for any one person or group to tamper with votes, instead requiring all of them to work together, something very improbable."
