Subject: RE: [election-services] Defining a trusted voting process - one disabilities concern


As somebody who has MS I can only agree with your sentiment. These issues
though I would have thought are for the politicians to ponder, naval gaze
and ultimately probably maybe ignore.

The fact of secure voting processes should be open to all however before
this is possible a process must be put into place.

All the best
