Good to see you here in this WG.
In Cyberspace it is actually easier to police ballot box stuffing than in
The polling booth we use for the IDNO constituency has a good safeguard:
the booth generates individual passwords for the whole voter's roll. Only
the voters on the roll can get in. No one can vote twice.
If Javier and Randy do not object, we could use it to facilitate the work
in this WG.
It also allows each voter to comment on the vote topic, so that looking at
the results gives an automatic overview of minority opinions, etc. This is
handy for maintaining discussion threads without the "noise".
