Letter to Michael McDowell about online voting

Dear Mr. McDowell,

I received your materials outlining your priorities for Seanad √Čireann and was dismayed to learn that you advocate "online voter registration and voting".

Voting in Seanad √Čireann elections is at present conducted by means of a postal ballot. Postal voting already presents a variety of serious threats to the confidentiality and integrity of the ballot. Online voting would solve none of these problems, exacerbate most of them, and introduce some new and unique problems of its own.
