Online Voting


In an age when nearly every other task we do on a daily basis involves the Internet, voting is still in the dark ages.

We live in an increasingly paperless society. E-filing has replaced paper tax forms. Online banking has replaced bank statements and checks. The iPad has replaced medical forms in doctor’s offices. Yet, we continue to rely on paper ballots and in-person voting machines.

Online voting would maximize convenience for voters, allowing them to cast their ballots from any computer or mobile device at any time of day during the voting period. It would also allow for easier tabulation by election officials.

As recent large scale data breaches have shown (along with the healthcare.gov debacle), performance, privacy and security remain obstacles to implementing online voting. In addition to the potential for spouses, relatives, and others to look over a voter’s shoulder when they vote at home, these obstacles are formidable. But there may be a time when we can leverage the digital connectedness of our citizenry to increase participation.

Elected official? Take the pledge now.
