Letters to the Editor 

Elections are verified when all parties are free to scrutinize and count ballots in each others' presence. No one has shown how this can be achieved with electronic voting systems. The one thing we do know about non-verifiable elections is that they increase voter cynicism . So, while council is right to observe that voters don't show a lot of interest or confidence in their doings, this costly "solution" can only make matters worse.
