    This video explains why electronic voting is a bad idea.



    To summarize the video, basically electronic voting opens up a lot of potential avenues to election fraud that are not obvious, and massive election fraud is easier to carry out with electronic voting than it is with conventional physical voting.

    In my personal opinion, the most optimal voting system would probably involve a combination of both electronic voting and physical voting, where there is actual physical evidence.
    Ideally, I think the physical votes should be the ones that are counted, but the electronic records could be used as supplementary evidence to help verify that physical votes were not tampered with in smaller scale situations.

    I pretty much agree. I think the scanned paper ballots are about the ideal. They can be either read by a scanner or by hand.
