Stephen writes "A group called the Open Rights Group has condemned recent experiments in Britain with electronic voting. They conclude "E-voting is a 'black box system', where the mechanisms for recording and tabulating the vote are hidden from the voter. This makes public scrutiny impossible, and leaves statutory elections open to error and fraud. The Government has prioritised the introduction of e-voting because of the perceived convenience of new technologies, ignoring other vital considerations such as confidence and trust in the electoral system." The BBC also has the story."
