No Sh*t Sherlock…

Here’s a brilliant insight – stop e-voting until you’ve worked out how you want to modernise elections.

After the Holyrood election debacle in Scotland we have learned that even when still marking paper, we can’t do it properly when there is an electronic component.

It is taking the US of A years of painful debate and dubious results in some elections to even get around to letting people test the electronic systems (which they have been using for years). What happens there gets here eventually.

This paper (about hacking voting systems) from the office of the Secretary of State for California says in the summary – “The red teams demonstrated that, under these conditions, the technology and security of all three systems could be compromised.”.
