    Yes, and there is an easy way of doing that. You give people an ID based on their birth certificate and hash that information. You now have an anonymous identifier which you can tie to a vote. This vote can go on a public blockchain. Any party interested can subscribe to the blockchain and verify their own vote from home while their avatars give a plausible deniability.

    People that say their votes were tampered with go back to vote again, which submits a cancel vote and a new vote.

    Do you think voters should be required to prove that they are legitimate?

    Yes. My state went that route and it's not that big a deal.

    You ballot is printed for you and you alone. It is tied to your Photo ID by control number

    Here's how it works

    Photo ID is required to vote in person. The 3d barcode is scanned and a living, breathing person compares the picture to your face. Your ballot is then printed

    Absentee ballots must be requested in writing and your Photo ID number is required. Photo ID is required a second time when you drop the ballot off. If you chose to mail in the ballot, your signature is hand checked with the signature on your Voter ID

    How do you get a down vote for nominative statements of fact that can be verified from your state's body of revised statutes???

    Facts are becoming increasingly irrelevant on this site....

    Sometimes common sense isn’t so difficult to comprehend.

    I think a computer shouldn't be used, is better like in TD state where there is a paper trail, like Canada, that allow to recount easily if it is necessary.

    Someone was floating the idea that in the future people could vote using their phone. It's a terrible idea, like a computer anything digital could be hacked.

    By the way, if you are able to vote and don't do that, you should pay a fine like $ 50. Democracy die in people's apathy.

    In the United States the voting system actually works quite well. If anything needs to be changed it is the campaign contribution laws. Elected officials spend way too much time raising money for re-election campaigns and no where near enough time listening to their constituents.

    Paper ballots like in Canada is the way to go. It’s worked for hundreds of years
