Big Brother will be able to watch you vote (source)
Once again we are faced with the fact that (in Slovenia at least) stupidity is not confined to the political right. Namely: left wing MPs, Marko Pavliha (Social Democrats) and Slavko Gaber (Liberal Democrats) have proposed a bill which would enable electronic voting.
We are not talking about the antiquated electronic voting machines which (with a little help of Karen Huges and elderly Jews) fucked up Florida elections, but about proper electronic voting, with an electronic signature and a mouse.
I think this is a really fucking bad idea. The point of democratic and anonymous elections is that you cast your vote anonymously and without even a theoretical record of your voting preference. Electronic voting negates the very basics of free, fair and anonymous elections. If you use your (unique, might I add) electronic signature, vote from a specific IP address and cast your vote by clicking one candidate, records will be made.
This opens up a whole plethora of dangerous options, from election frauds to punshing individuals for their electoral preference. Because there will come a time when end will justify the means. And if something can be done, it eventually will be done. Sooner or later. Including controling the way people vote.
