Perhaps the most important part of the e-voting process, like any voting process, is the campaign.
I suggest we read and discuss the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) report on the "US election titled Electronic Deceptive Campaign Practices: Internet Technology & Democracy 2.0" written under the leadership of Ms. Lillie Coney, Associate Director of EPIC.
The full report is available at: http://votingintegrity.org/pdf/edeceptive_report.pdf
The executive summary begins:
"Deceptive campaigns are attempts to misdirect targeted voters regarding the voting process for
public elections. Election activity that would be considered deceptive could for example
include false statements about polling times, date of the election, voter identification rules, or
the eligibility requirements for voters who wish to cast a ballot. Historically, disinformation
and misinformation efforts intended to suppress voter participation have been systemic
attempts to reduce voter participation among low-income, minority, young, disabled, and
elderly voters. Deceptive techniques deployed in the 2004 and 2006 general elections relied
upon telephone calls, ballot challenges, direct mail, and canvass literature drops.(1) Some voters
were told they would face arrest if they attempted to vote and had outstanding parking tickets
or were behind in child support payments.(2)"
