Safeguards should be in place to prevent removal of evidence of how a voter has voted from the polling station.
- 51. A remote e-voting system shall not enable the voter to be in possession of a proof of the content of the vote cast. 52. In a supervised environment, the information on the vote shall disappear from the visual, audio or tactile display used by the voter to cast the vote as soon as it has been cast. There a paper proof of the electronic vote is provided to the voter at a polling station, the voter shall not be able to show it to any other person, or take this proof outside of the polling station.
- For the voter, secrecy of voting is not only a right but also a duty, non-compliance with which must be punishable by disqualification of any ballot paper whose content is disclosed.
