Seattle-area election will use smartphone voting system that worries some experts.

I'm all for increasing voter participation, but electronic voting seems ripe for abuse in ways that in-person voting isn't. Still, this doesn't sound terrible:

Democracy Live’s technology has been used without issue in roughly 1,000 elections since 2010, Finney said. Voters visit an election website, which runs on data centers run by Amazon Web Services that use the same security certifications as federal agencies using the technology. After making their selections, voters save their ballots as a PDF file and digitally sign it. Or they can print it and physically sign it. In the past, voters have had to mail in that ballot, though overseas military could often send it as an email attachment.


What? You mean to don't trust Dr. Evil, woops, I mean Jeff Bezos, implicitly?

Without paper trail that is mandated for all, this is about as tamper proof as your kitchen cupboard...
