As information security technology develops, it's important to consider applications that add to the security of civilized nations.  To this end, it is inevitable that a method of personalized voter verification be developed.  I think bitcoin tech could possibly factor in but of course it would have to be absolutely secure to where only the end user could track and verify that their own vote was counted and if the vote was ever wanted to be used for analysis or investigation it would require opt-in from the individual.

It's just one of these things I think about regularly.  We have the tech to make it work but of course it's a money and political issue.  But I predict we'll see it within the next twenty years if we bug our elected officials enough.  I may look into petitioning on my own very soon.

Voter verification or vote tracking?
People would definitely want their choice of candidate to remain anonymous.

You can now vote securely, anonymously and transparently using the system setup on BitPools.

But it is not set up for today's government elections. Wasting time on that would be like Satoshi creating Bitcoin to make it easier for banks to transfer fiat amongst themselves.
