Since this discussion is now about national elections, which must be
taken much more seriously than polls on release names: Can you propose
a mechanism that allows the voter to verify his vote at a later time,
but does not allow the voter to prove to someone else that he voted for
the candidate he was paid to vote for, and does not allow a dominant
father to verify that the family members voted like he ordered them to
vote? This is not a trivial problem to solve.
