I would be VERY wary of online voting. There is too much opportunity for either (1) a computer failure that obliterates a whole block or results, or (2) a built-in bias that would skew the results and perhaps never be found out. If you do a recount a million times, it proves nothing. If you recount physical ballots, you can prove whether the initial count was accurate or not.

Yes, we trust our finances and medical info to computers. They have backups and the ability to replay transactions--exactly what an election should NOT have because that would mean recording who voted for whom, defeating the purpose of secret balloting.
