Elections are indispensable for democracy, but their trustworthiness demands transparency and impartiality from governments, even more so for automated elections. This work presents common criticisms to e-voting systems, focusing on the Venezuelan case, where there have been around 15 elections of this kind in the last 17 years. The Venezuelan government calls it ‘‘the most perfect voting system in the world’’, but its results have been questioned, studied and contested.

Keywords: elections, e-voting systems, computer security, transparency, impartiality, Venezuela
