UK: E-vote enthusiasts likely to be disappointed

E-vote enthusiasts likely to be disappointed

Anybody hoping that the election night chaos at many polling stations - when hundreds were turned away without voting - would bring electronic voting closer are likely to be disappointed.

The Electoral Commission investigation into the fiasco, to be published within days, is focusing purely on what went wrong on the night - rather than on alternatives to putting a cross on a ballot paper.

Furthermore, the commission accepts that widespread e-voting cannot happen until individual registration is introduced nationwide, which is not due to happen until 2015. --->>>
