City of Peterborough 2006 Internet Election

In a deeply misguided move, Peterborough Ontario will be providing Internet voting in the 2006 municipal election.

I quote:

Internet Voting = No long line-ups, no traffic, no bad weather days!

Hmm, my slogan would go more like:

Internet Voting = no proof that people have voted, no ballots you can recount, plus I can stand with a gun to your head as you vote!

Oh also, I can potentially easily tell who voted for whom even if I'm not watching you, thanks to the convenient online voter database that is needed.

They will be using Dominion Voting Systems.

I would add to the slogan "elections judges that watch surrealistic images", as it was demonstrated by Pr Andrew Appel (Princeton Univ.) in a recent Internet voting in France (also two other reports in French).
