e-Voting

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

We have been assured that e-voting is simple, fast, accurate and inexpensive. On this basis, I request that the option "None of the above" be appended to all lists of candidates. Also, an election should be rerun in any constituency where the actual poll, excluding votes for "None of the above", is less than 50% of the total eligible to vote there.

On a related point, the only people who seem to be pushing e-Voting are Minister Cullen and TDs. Given that we have a perfectly good paper-based system at present, will the Minister undertake to resign without argument or delay if any significant disruption or failures arise during the operation of e-Voting in the forthcoming elections.  After all, he wants the system and he is try to fix something that is not broken.
