The thinkers at San Diego-based "Everyone Counts" are betting they can get voters to register their preference by VoIP within the next few years. 

Voting can be done by using VoIP. To utilize the technology, a voter dials in and uses touch or voice to enter authenticating information, typically some combination of ballot code, PIN, date of birth, Social Security number or driver's license number. Then the ballot is cast by touch or voice.

VoIP allows the ballot to be encrypted using established Internet encryption protocols
