Can't be easily verified (and generally you, as a mere peasant, won't get the right to do any such thing), can't be trusted, prone to "failures", hacking, etc.With the hard fact about the necessity of public counting in mind --- what we describe as "Democracy's Gold Standard" around here --- Computerphile's Scott goes on to note these other very important points (among others):
• There is no reason to simply "trust" anybody or anything when it comes to elections. "Trust" has no place in democracy or vote counting.
• "OPEN SOURCE" USED WITH ELECTRONIC VOTING AND TALLYING SYSTEMS IS NOT A SOLUTION!
• When it comes to the madness of Internet Voting, as Scott explains: "It is a terrible idea, and if a government ever promises to use it, hope they don't manage to use it before you get a chance to vote them out."
And then, voting on ... Internet. Is that a joke?
