dc.descriptionThis was the first journal paper to give a systematic security analysis of vulnerabilities of internet voting in public elections. It draws upon “...the laudably thorough Technical Options Report by Ben Fairweather and Simon Rogerson at De Montfort” (www.vnunet.com/itweek/analysis/2086828/commentexperimental-voting-leaves-nasty-aftertaste). Disanalogies between voting and banking are described, and the 2002 electronic voting pilots were critiqued. Unusually for a fully refereed academic journal, Representation is read by significant numbers of MPs and policy makers, due to its links to the Electoral Reform Society. The Electoral Commission heeded the advice for caution, suspending electronic voting pilots between 2003 and 2007, and has subsequently taken on board criticism in the paper that security analysis of pilots is needed (see for example p19ff www.electoralcommission.org.uk/files/dms/Actica Summary 27244-20136_E_N_S_W_.pdf ).en
