Electorate says ‘no’ to Net voting

'X' marks the spot

As the UK readies itself for a month of mind-numbing electioneering it's been revealed that one in five UK voters would be happy use the Internet to exercise their democratic right, according to a poll from Forrester Research.

According to our advanced calculus, that means 80 per cent of voters would not be happy to use the Net to vote. End of story.

So, Forrester, there you have it. The majority has spoken.

People are happy to stick with a battered old tin ballot box, a slip of paper and a crayon when they come to vote. It might be old fashioned and low tech, but at least it works. ®
