Quantum communication systems as a way to vote online
 | 
Bulgaria European_Union_user 
Quantum communication systems are secure enough to be able to vote online in future elections. Would you vote online if your country have Quantum communication systems? Would you vote online with the current online system if your country indroduce e-vote?

in the future probably we will have satellite quantium communication-all you would need is a satellite dish probably

Solar power has been a thing since the 1980's and we are still here wasting gas and fuel just for the sake of billionaire's wealth Quantum anything will not be available to normal people for probably several decades/centuries, we will probably be still hearing about it in development/just releasing when we are all about to die from old age Basically no its not going to happen because nothing ever changes

Ofc it will not be commercially available at all-it will be a military satellite but when the ellection day comes it could be used so ppl can vote from their home safely.

Quantum is literally more secure than ballots, so yes of course. I have comp sci degree and our professor was rambling about quantum computers for some classes.

Voting online isn't safe it should be forbidden it could be rigged easily

I'm pretty sure for that to work you would need a system that operates entirely on qbits for every vote that's registered and there's no way that we can do that with the number of resources it would take to build that system. By the time we have those resources, that technology will be commercially available to the public which means that (I think) that there would be people out there which would intend to tamper with that system and probably have the means to. So no, I wouldn't.

could quantum computer handle this? on board integrated in the satellite and another quantum super computer on the ground? Satellite dishes in every home will transmit their vote trough that quantum secure communication channel network? Ofc it will not be commercially available at all-it will be a military satellite but when the ellection day comes it could be used so ppl can vote from their home safely.

Why would they be safer? It's still running software written by humans

but wouldn't there be the risk that since its made out of quantum bits, which are both 0 and 1 at the same time, the machine would have an error where every 0 is now 1 and every 1 is 0 or something like that?

no-modern chips cannot make that error anymore

So youre saying that quantum communications are more secure? Ok, but currently we also have secure enough means of communication so thats not a problem. The problem is how do you ensure that the local or remote machine dont run rogue code that might discard or change ur vote or straight up miscount the votes.

"Ok, but currently we also have secure enough means of communication so thats not a problem." Tell me which one is the secure enough you are talking about? Only quantum communications can deliver this.

Literally any communication done on the internet right now. Traffic between your browser and hltv.org is secured. Even your ISP can't see your username and password, no matter how hard they try. Only you and hltv are able to know these credentials and no external attacker can read or tamper the messages exchanged between you and hltv.org Want to go even more secure? Use a physical token like those used to sign off your bank transactions, except that these tokens will be issued by the government to you. Downside? They might be able to track your vote, depending on how the system is designed. I recall this is a good video explaining why electronic voting can't be trused youtube.com/watch?v=LkH2r-sNjQs spoiler: it is not due to how votes are sent, but it is due to how votes are count and how much do you trust an abstract machine to do that

make your own research on quantum communications and you will see what i mean.

both are dogshit, cuz you can be forced to vote in front of your employer/higher up etc etc. the current system is even worse, just read anything research wise it cannot be secure. edit: u have to have a paper trail to recount the whole thing, or u're just fucked. especially in a country like russia

so what? i didnt say that voting from home is not comfortable, but if u want to have fair elections u dont vote online period. u already had Trump calling US election a fraud and this happened in a democratic country. they sued, recounted and now it's done. imagine your system in that situation? trump voters already stormed the capitol, now try to explain online quantum voting to a trump voter that doesnt trust you and your counting.

i dont need to explain anything-if a person is smart enough he will do his own research no matter who he voted for.And will realize quantum communications is far superiour and secure enough to vote from their home for whoever they like to vote.

Before we ask whether we should expand voting like that, we should consider whether having everyone vote is such a good thing. It doesn't matter that's it's encrypted or is counted by a computer without human biases or ulterior motives, because the input is still trash. Garbage in, garbage out.
