Re: Secret Ballots: How Secret

Hi Sam,

* Sam Hartman <hartmans@debian.org> [2022-02-17 16:14]:
Would you prefer that we not mandate that voters be able to verify their
votes were counted so that we could have plausibel deniability?

Are there aspects of DPL elections that make this less of an issue for
DPL elections than other issues?

The way I see it, we have two goals to define:

1. Level of secrecy. Is it enough if Non-DDs cannot look up my
vote on the Internet, or should my vote remain so secret that I
can't even prove to someone else that I voted at all?

2. Ease of verification. Should it be possible to audit the results
with some basic counting abilities (and maybe access to the
Wikipedia page on the Schulze method), or is it acceptable if the
verification is so involved that it cannot be done without software
assistance and/or extensive expertise?
