Site sobre Voto Electrónico: é um Voto Secreto?

O Aquiq enviou-me este link sobre o voto electrónico.
É contra o voto electrónico
Basicamente afirmam aquilo que eu já tinha comentado e me perguntado num post anterior: apesar do voto electrónico poder ser, em princípio, à prova de fraude tal como os milhões de transações bancárias que todos os dias se fazem, poderá não ser possível garantir que é absolutamente secreto.
Ou será...?
Penso que não.
Mas poderei estar errado...

Transcrevo uma parte do texto do site:

"Our world if so full of computers and electronic devices that it comes natural for us to think they migth be used for elections too.
After all isn't voting a transaction just like those we make through credit card?
(...)
Unfortunately votes and economical data largely differ in the level of the secrecy they require and this has serious consequences.
Economical data are known to involved people (payers, intermediaries, and payees), but must be secret from everybody else.

Votes must be secret from everybody.
Each vote is known only to his own voter (the payer) and it must be unknown to all the others, particularly to electoral organization (the intermediaries) and candidates (the payees). (...)"
