Commission advises against use of e-voting

Woo! E-voting (as it is in Ireland) has been turned down by the commission that investigated the issue. There were many concerns about security, secrecy and privacy but in the last few weeks nothing was heard from opponents of the system.
The Government has been running a campaign advocating e-voting, and it has over-simplified the issues (“Press a button”, “We’ve had plenty of practise”, etc..)
Hopefully the Government will clean up their act and implement a good system, and maybe it won’t cost €40m next time..
More on RTÉ and Labour Party website.
Later… Cullen rules out use of e-voting in June! Yay!
later Still… slashdot picked up on the story, along with OT posts as well, lol.
