This review is from: The End of Politics and the Birth of iDemocracy (Paperback)
Mr Carswell has something worthwhile to say. How many Members of Parliament want direct democracy? Not many. At all events they have little to say about it. The major problem with Internet voting is the technology, which is open to fraud as well as software problems. When there is no audit trail we cannot know if things went right or not. People who voted against Bush were very annoyed at losing. They complained about sub-standard machines.

Secure database technology has been used in banking for years by everyone, with FAR fewer problems than the costs of visiting a bank branch (wasting time and parking charges) and then suffering human error from a cashier (last week I paid in cash and the cashier marked it wrongly as a cheque, which means it won't clear into my account for ages!!!). It's a sight safer and cheaper than paper ballots and hand-counting by people who have their own party politics and are tempted to put ballots in the wrong pile. No risk from computers doing that! I'm a professional programmer who graduated in IT and am also a qualified network and internet security engineer.

Auditable data is the bedrock of internet security. It's simply a deception to claim that technology is not the way forward!
