The biggest problem with e-voting is that it tries to replace the heart of our democratic system, that is due to its simple nature (pen, paper & people who count) super transparent and everyone understands, with a system that is build on computers and, in worst case proprietary, software and hardware that no one in the world fully understands.

Is it worth it to replace a system that can explained and understood by a 6 year old child with a system that neither you nor me understands?

@sheogorath Uncomfortably this is the same argument which was made against merchants using arabic numerals instead of a counting board. However, the discomfort is that it was (and remains, increasingly) a valid argument.
