What are the barriers to facilitating adoption of democratic national elections online?
Instead of physical voting centers across democratic nations during election periods, which have associated labor costs, counting inefficiencies and opportunity for the tampering of votes - what if elections could be held online?
What are the barriers for nations adopting this type of voting system? and how can we overcome these shifts and increase adoption?
For example, authentication of individuals - how can we overcome this? What are the differences In the case of less developed countries, as opposed to a developed country?
What other barriers are there?
David Bismark in his TED talk, "E-voting without fraud", goes further to suggest individuals who vote in elections have the right to transparency, that is to know that there vote has been counted. It seems logical, so why isn't it happening across the world?
