This certainly would encourage more people to vote, especially if they don't have the time or resources to get to the polls. The downside is websites dedicated to garnering votes would be very tempting targets for hackers.

“There's another more sinister possibility - that the whole online electoral apparatus could be hacked and the result manipulated or discredited." This would be my biggest concern. Too much hacking going on.

I have to agree with Freya and Sandra.
It would be nice and convenient in a perfect world unfortunately we don't.
Thank you
