Unfortunately, according to one scientific association in the U.S., there may not be a safe way to do it with their smartphones just yet.
In an open letter dated April 9 to Governors, Secretaries of State and State Election Directors, the American Association for the Advancement of Science’s (AAAS) Center for Scientific Evidence in Public Issues urged officials to not allow internet voting in elections:“At this time, internet voting is not a secure solution for voting in the United States, nor will it be in the foreseeable future.”Internet voting includes “email, fax, and web-based voting as well as voting via mobile apps”.
Allowing e-voting and voting by mail would allow greater turnout and potentially hurt Republicans’ chance of keeping the White House.
This may explain why President Donald Trump has described mail-in voting as “horrible” while admitting he uses it himself.
However, the expenses for the voting hardware were significant, and the time tallying the votes took so long it raised questions of tampering.
