Unfortunately we know that politicians aren't so discriminating and that 
it will increase the risk of buying into the vendor's agenda;

'Christopher Small, director of public sector at ntl:Telewest Business 
 said: "Local government is often a shining example of how to provide 
 online services, as such allowing local citizens to vote online would be 
 very much in keeping with the digital age in which we now live. Trialling 
 this tactic at a local government level should pave the way for e-voting 
 in general elections, where voter turnout is also on the decrease." '
