4. It may have the appearance of working well, but unless you are able to verify
that each person received his/her ballot as expected and that each ballot mailed by a legitimate voter made it back to the registrar and that each vote was counted as cast, you have no proof that the election was problem-free.

As Brad points out so clearly in his article (did you read it? :shrug:) the vulnerabilities in the mailing system coupled with the fact that the votes are tabulated secretly with optical scanners run with secret software make this a BAD plan!!

Don't be fooled by appearances.
