Forderung nach Stopp für eVoting-Versuche

Alistair Graham, Vorsitzender des britischen Committee on Standards in Public Life, rief dazu auf, die für 2007 vorgesehenen eVoting-Pilotversuche in Großbritannien zu stoppen. Hinweis aus Jason Kitcats Weblog.
In einer Rede (doc-Format) vor der Association of Electoral Administrators sagte Graham: "The current systems to combat electoral abuse in Great Britain are unsatisfactory already, so to proceed with these pilot schemes, appears ill-timed and betrays confusion over priorities. Unfortunately it appears to come down to the obsession with modernisation as a means of increasing participation at elections. Postal voting on demand, e-voting or telephone voting? They all sound such handy innovations; such a modern way to help busy consumers who cannot tear themselves away from the television or the shops to cast a conventional vote. But all the glib talk about the need to find customer-friendly ways of voting by post, text and the internet has ignored the hard truth that once you allow ballot papers to leave polling stations the opportunities for fraud multiply and the secrecy of the ballot compromised" (es gilt das gesprochene Wort).
