While the US struggles with its archaic voting system, here's a thought.

Despite numerous supposedly foolproof electronic voting machines on the market, all made by otherwise respectable companies, none have proven to be unhackable; in fact, they're laughably simple to break. If we can't even make a secure standalone machine to collect votes, there's no hope that anyone will ever create a secure Internet voting system. Or is there?

I'm convinced that there is no reason this cannot be done, and that the technology exists today to accomplish it. So let's put our heads together here and toss around ideas, shoot them down one by one, and thin the herd until we come up with an architecture that is unbreakable made of the pieces left standing. I'm not talking about coding anything, just outlining a bullet-proof structure and methodology. The implementation details can be left for an article later.

Anyone game?
