Comments on No Online Voting Yet (How long Did You Wait In Line?)
'...every veephone on the continent would display, over and over, two propositions'- John Brunner, 1975. (Read the complete story)

"As it turned out, I waited just twenty minutes to vote! I was also thinking about Brunner's 'veephones', which (as I recall) were hardwired devices. But it made me think about using mobile phones to vote, which would be the ultimate in easy online voting."

"Online voting may come of age, after we can ensure each voter has a personal computer and that that person's ID can't be compromised. The first part is easy, the second... not so much."

"Dewtey - that's why I was thinking that mobile phones hold part of the answer, as far as online voting is concerned. First, a mobile phone is tied to an individual (it's my phone number) and many people already password-protect their phones. Some phones already have fingerprint security, and aren't there apps that pull in a picture of a fingerprint? But I don't trust any of the e-voting machines, and I guess I don't trust anything that doesn't leave a verifiable paper trail."
