The tech angle is news, but it is misleading to call this a 'board of supervisors' election. It is an election to a Conservation District board, which (for arcane & historical reasons) does not have to abide by many types of state and federal election law. Seems worth mentioning somewhere in this article that Seattle has one of the highest turnout rates in the country for most election due to Washington's easily accessible vote-by-mail program, which suggests that ease of access is not what's holding back the KC BoS elections.

... bad idea. So many ways to intercept and mess with mobile data: I say stick to pen and paper.... ot may not be hip and green but it is easier to recount and that helps with all the alleged hacking and meddling interesting 🐨🐶🐻🐆🦊🐮🦅🐎🐿🦒🕊 And totally hackable! Is this cheaper than voter ID? mikko And anybody who understand computer security has a thousand reasons for why this is awful. It's insecure and prone to manipulation

That’s a lot easier for Iran. Thanks Democrats! wait, I thought there was Russian and Chinese hacking elections going on, think this is a good idea?!

This is awesome! We bank via our mobile phone but can not vote? We also need stern stiff laws punishable by death for interring with our elections Seattle is so basackwards The CEO of the company providing the technology behind this initiative also works in collaboration with the current Department of Homeland Security, which seems like...relevant information worth mentioning.

What could go wrong? Such a BAD IDEA!!! That won’t possible be an enormous disaster... I miss the days of pregnant chads This sounds highly problematic WA State is a vote by mail state with online ballot tracking. Better to keep the unhackable verifiable paper ballot Just make sure there’s no one from Agnes Scott on the ballot. Heh

Literally nothing can go wrong here at all.

There was never been a worse idea. Nothing to see here, folks, move along. What could possibly go wrong? OK, but first I need to know what jennycohn1 thinks. Where’s my HandMarkedPaperBallots? Unless there is 20 step authentication, thumb print, eye scan, etc this is a suspect idea. Gee, what could possibly go wrong?
