How about individual ID cards? Non-transferable and only valid for one vote at a particular polling station. But useful for other things too whenever you need to prove your ID. A bit like mobile phone recharge vouchers.

We have the technology. Coles and Woolworths can afford to send out millions of 'rewards' cards which work on the same principle.

But logistics in PNG maybe a bit of a challenge.

Very nice article Philip.

In Koge, Sinasina District, the electoral officers and security personnel's gladly entertained double voters belonging to the sitting member.

Also the security personnel's and electoral officers did not stop the young voters from manipulating the older voters during the act of voting. Under the pretense of providing assistance the young voters marked according to their own preferences.

I wonder how we will make our elections free, fair and safe.
