    Hey, bro, don't put all your eggs in one basket. Play small, small and win enough to buy whatever in your wish list. U punted all your Progress Package on my number? Wow, ur wishlist must be pretty long, huh?

    No offence but some of you guys are just paranoid. Your vote is secret. What's the point of casting your vote if it isnt a secret?

    The basis of accountability to traceback any dubious phantom votes is the basis for the serial number on the ballot paper my friend.

    So, any suggestions for absolute accountability and absolute anonymity?

    The serial number is for accountability (ie. X no. of slips issued = X no. of slips collected)

    True: they may know how a block or ward votes, but never pinpoint the individual.

    If you have voted this morning, you will notice that the voting box is a plain cardboard box, with the appropriate seals, resting on a simple table or chair.

    Question: How to put scanner to scan?

    We can get all the ppl in the Elections Dept to dismiss the serial number myth (as propagated by JBJ), swear everyone to secrecy on the actual voting process, show everyone the voting process....

    At the end of the day, there will STILL be people who will say, "ISD is tracking ur votes!"

    If ppl choose to be paranoid, we can't help them if they choose to live their lives in jitters eh?

    From what I know of 4D (becoz I don't buy), there is a form that buyers need to shade, much like your exam papers for MCQ. The person behind the counter will then run it thru a scanner, an optical mark reader specially designed for reading the 4D paper, that picks up the shading and prints a receipt for you.

    For voting, there is no touching of the voting slips except by yourself and the counting agent who counts infront of the political parties. Again this is done on a simple table. After counted, it is replaced into the cardboard box and resealed and signed by the political parties.

    So, where is there an opportunity to scan it?

    Better if they don't have the serial number to curb people's paranoid tendency.

    Agreed & well said!

    Unless you work as a returning officer at one of the polling centers, it is easy to overlook the security & process put in place to ensure your vote is secret, and cast doubt on it.

    It is not nice to doubt the security & process until a thorough understanding or contradictary evidence is shown.

    The serial number behind your voting slip is only for "authenticity" purposes in case there is a dispute on the genuineness of the slip.

    Think about it...

    1.22 million voters, slips are counted in front of the potlictical parties, boxes are sealed & signed and kept in a vault for 6 months, no one allowed to open it unless there is a dispute and then infront of the political parties again. At the end of six months, the political parties inspect the seals and follow it to Tuas for burning. The only time the slips are seen by people is when is counted between 8pm 6 may to next day (at the most 24 hours).

    ...where got time to "scan" the slips? It takes about 340 hours (nearly 2 weeks) to scan them 24X7 assuming one second per slip. And where got chance to "open the box" without the opposition knowing.

    YOUR VOTE IS SECRET

    The myth of the voting slip has been around for the last 30 years... even before scanners
    Agreed!

    It is a story cooked up by the Opposition for a very long time. It is an urban myth for a juicy conspirationist theory.

    Voting is secret. After votes are counted, they are burnt...kaput...gone.
