It does not take a genius to create an electronic voting system that is far better than paper ballots. What takes the genius is the creation of a hackable system. For well over 6 years, I have been proposing an electronic voting system that would allow individual voters to check the official voting database to see if their vote was properly recorded. If not, the voter would have acceptable legal proof that there was an error. Furthermore, anybody with a computer could download the official database and use their own computer to count the votes. Why are no governments at any level demanding a system with these capabilities?
Here is the earliest post on this blog that I can find, Making Electronic Voting Transparent.
