Doe anyone have any updates or language on electonic elections - process and how user friendly is it? 

Thanks!

They're not allowed unless your bylaws provide for them.  That's nothing new.

The start of the post addresses public elections & their machines which won't matter for many assemblies.  When he gets into voting over the internet, however, it DOES apply.

Anonymity, secure, internet--pick at most two.

But that's exactly my point. Depending on the society, "secure" might not be a big concern for them. For many societies, the stakes will be somewhat lower and, as a result, less likely to be the target of nefarious actors.

That reminds me of a post from the earlier days of Usenet, talking about the nature of debate, "It has been said that academic politics is so nasty because the stakes are so low.   Welcome to the new low."

Certainly, a society may do as it pleases.  But a couple of excited people may be able to convince a society to take a course of action which is dangerous for the society.  Few people outside IT understand the fundamental problem that anonymous-internet-secure is impossible, and that any decision will, at best, be making tradeoffs.
