electronic vote is a gift to organized crime
Advertisements [?]
In countries with an heavy presence of organized crime, it is absolutely impossible to vote at home using internet or any other technology. Infact the control of the vote by the crime would be complete. If I close my eyes for a few seconds I already see gangsters entering people homes and sitting behind the computer checking "de visu" each and any vote given there. But such a physical presence it is not even necessary since it would be enough for the "bosses" to pretend from their subdues the video tape recording their voting at home.

So if we in Italy (but I know many other countries with the same problem) insist in voting electronicaly, we CAN'T use any remote system, but we MUST place computers in the usual public polling station.
