    There was a bit of news about this...

    But not as much about this...

    There will always be risks associated with this sort of thing but that is a worry given the alternatives. I've been following the local Horizon State team (https://horizonstate.com) who have been working on a blockchain based voting platform. It would be good to see more about this and how it has been used.

    I know a lot of people don't trust online voting, for good reason, but it's inevitable so would be good to see it as open as possible.
