Had my first electronic voting experience today in the ACT.

Have to say it was pretty neat and painless!

Process was essentially; receive a card with a QR code, scan said card, enter preferences, scan card again and then drop card in a ballot box. Would be interested to understand how votes get stored / how they're tied to a card. I have my guesses, but but they all lead me to something overly convoluted 😅

@nitza those were the first questions my partner asked too! My teen daughter reckons she'd prefer to vote with pencil and paper til she knows the system can't be hacked.
