The problems with electronic voting in elections and referendums

E-voting's Unsolvable Problem
Elections have to satisfy three conditions, they must be:

Secure - Your vote has to be secure, steps must be taken to make sure it can’t be tampered with; but also

Anonymous - Your vote can’t be traced back to you, protecting you against coercion; but also

Verifiable - It has to be shown that one person cast this one vote, and didn’t cast another to be counted, but also continue to be secure and anonymous.

Nightmare? You don’t even know the half of it.

2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?
