Is electronic voting the way of the future?

Is electronic voting the way of the future? If a secure platform were developed to allow for people to vote through SMS on their phones, for example, would you support it?

Electronic voting, yes, the way we do it today. But using the phones? I don't think it has reached that kind of security to guarantee that the person using the phone is perfectly identified and no chances of misuse or misvote there. Maybe they will develop first a system where you can pay via your phone (not just being able to do it with web apps and via credit card, but it is the phone account itself that pays). If they master that security enough, then it is closer to getting secure for voting purposes. :)


I wish it was already the way of the present. I hate election times when you have to go out to some Public venue and wait in massive queues just to vote.
