Objectives of Secure and Fair Electronic Voting

First, only the eligible voters can vote and each voter can vote only once. The ballots of the eligible voters should be correctly accumulated in the tally. In addition, the ballot should be secret so that others cannot infer the intention of the voter. With ballot secrecy, the voter may feel free to express his or her intentions without fear of retribution. As the voted ballots lack physical protections such as the polling boxes in conventional voting methods, the results of the voting should be verifiable. Further, the voting cannot be disrupted by the voter regardless of whether or not he or she will be traced.
