I was sorely disappointed by the Ministry of Justice’s response to the Electoral Commission’s evaluations of the May e-voting & e-counting pilots in England (which implicitly addressed the ORG report on the elections which was formally submitted to both bodies).
Given past form it wasn’t an enormous surprise that the government failed to take on most of the lessons the disastrous May pilots offered up to them. As I’m knee deep in the Regency By-Election campaign ORG’s Chief Commandant par excellence (aka Executive Director) has led the charge on the blog posts: Firstly Open Rights Group dismayed by Ministry of Justice response on e-voting which is a joy to read and then a quick one on the Scottish Affairs committee.
By the way, if you’re not a member of ORG, why not?! Join today
(Also if interest is the Kable report on all this.)
