Web and text vote trials dropped

Proposed trials of voting via internet or text message in next year's local council elections have been scrapped by the government.
Ministers had been considering holding more pilot schemes in all London boroughs in next year's polls.

But the Department of Constitutional Affairs said: "The government believes that the time is not yet right to take forward the piloting of e-voting."

Amid Conservative claims of a U-turn, further trials are not being ruled out.
Voting should be with a pencil and paper and arriving at a polling station. I'm a firm supporter of technology being involved in more effective Government, but I remain deeply opposed to "electronic" voting . It's open to all sorts of abuse, at many locations in the chain.
