    Findings of the Open Rights Group Election Observation Mission in Scotland and
    England

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | The Open Rights Group cannot express confidence in the results for
    | areas observed.
    |
    | The Open Rights Group (ORG) believes that the problems observed at the
    | English and Scottish elections in May 2007 raise serious concerns
    | regarding the suitability of e-voting and e-counting technologies for
    | statutory elections. E-voting is a ‘black box system’, where the
    | mechanisms for recording and tabulating the vote are hidden from the
    | voter. This makes public scrutiny impossible, and leaves statutory
    | elections open to error and fraud.
