Even the current Danish right wing government have abandoned the plans for a electronic election system. Apparently it was the threat of foreign hacking that got through to them.


We have an excellent paper system with enough pooling sites that you can stand in line for minutes at rush times. Counting is done in a few hours.


Of course counting would take longer in a big country like the US.
We all know that if one man can dig one hole in one day, it would take ten men ten days to dig ten holes.

I would go as far as to say that anyone supporting a voting system with no paper trail expects there to be hacking in his/her favor.

Or trying to sell an electronic voting system.
