Continuing on from a post on 1 November about “faith-based” e-voting.
One of the main objections to e-voting is that it’s difficult for each voter to know that her vote was recorded accurately and counted correctly, while she remains anonymous. In the system designed by David Bismark and his colleagues, each voter gets a takeaway slip that serves as a record of the vote, and allows elections to be independently verified.

Presumably this approach could also be extended to work with STV polls and eliminate the enormous effort to physically transfer as candidates are elected and eliminated.
