When the US minds its own business, so will everyone else.

It's bizarre that Americans accept electronic voting when they are so distrustful of the government. Voting by email is fundamentally insecure and lacks anonymity - it should have been discounted out-of-hand. And electronic voting machines are just as bad, especially when they have ties to political candidates.

The US seriously needs to reform its voting process. It also needs to do more to protect against vested interests abusing the system - the voter suppression tactics by the GOP are particularly concerning and undermine democracy at a fundamental level.
Agreed

Considering that the US is the first to criticise other countries for the way they conduct elections I think it's only fair that the US should itself be scrutinised. Voting by email is antithesis to an anonymous vote and any security breach risks the voting preferences of voters being exposed, where they could come under pressure from groups seeking to influence future elections.
