King County Council Apparently Does Not Understand the Secret Ballot

Ben Adida, from Benlog, a Harvard postdoc in cryptography, has written lately of the lack of a secret ballot in vote-by mail systems. But apparently the King County Council didn’t get the memo, and issued this press release to whitewash the issue.

Dow Constatine and Larry Phillips apparently don’t understand the very heart of secrecy involves protections against others being able to “see” or verify how you vote.
