i think this is a cool idea that solves in part the problem of illiterate voters, but few are the countries that can afford secure e-voting right now. the other part of the problem for people who cannot read or write is the lack of access to information. it is, in my view, a tremendous problem because these people, most of the times incredibly poor, do not get the chance to seek out and chose their own representatives that would hopefully turn their lives for the better.
