What is the best way to ensure election integrity and make voting as simple as possible ?
(1) To ensure election integrity we must make sure that the vote is cast by the actual voter.
(2) To make the vote as simple as possible must provide a way for every qualified voter to cast their vote regardless of their situation.

If we can simultaneously maximize both of these we might be able to get ten Republicans onboard.

  • This question is extremely broad and the answer will depend on how the election is taking place.

    If this question was answerable, then every country in the world would already be doing it. As different countries run elections differently this is a matter of opinion. In particular, using smartphones is a very bad idea for the millions of people who don't have one (out of choice or poverty)

    In computer security, one of the first things you learn is to never trust the client device. Here, the smartphone. I barely trust my own phone, I would never trust yours. Personally, I would never cast a vote via my phone.
