Why Internet voting is a terrible idea, explained in small words anyone can understand

In this 20 minute video, Princeton computer science prof Andrew Appel lays out the problems with Internet-based voting in crisp, nontechnical language that anyone can understand.

Appel is a hero of fair elections: from buying "secure" voting machines on Ebay for $82, then writing extensively about their terrible flaws, to outing New Jersey for its voting irregularities coverup, Appel has been on the front lines of the electronic voting wars for years and years.
