The Varieties of “Internet Voting” Worth Discussing

Since I was complaining about the various confusions around the term “Internet Voting” I should also point readers to a fine summary of several such issues (including Internet distribution of blank ballots) by a group of panelists at the Computers, Freedom, Privacy conference. Kudos to panel chair Ed Felten for chairing the session and blogging a summary of the discussion among several e-voting tech and policy folks:

Amy Bjelland and Craig Stender (State of Arizona), Susan Dzieduszycka-Suinat (Overseas Vote Foundation) Avi Rubin (Johns Hopkins), and Alec Yasinsac (Univ. of South Alabama).

If you want to get a good grounding in how to sensibly discuss Internet voting, I heartily recommend both this blog posting and the Freedom to Tinker blog generally.
