The proposed Estonian system is an online voting system that's closely 
tied to the Estonian national ID smart card. I recently was at a 
presentation on the subject of the ID card.

In this e-voting system you digitally sign your vote with your smart 
card and submit the signed vote to the voting server. This will validate 
the signature and strip the identifying information before sending it to 
the counting server.

Not only do you have to trust the anonymizer and counting software, but 
you also have to trust your own PC, including the special evoting software.

For more information on the ID card see http://www.id.ee/, although I 
can find only one press release that mentions e-voting.
