If the election is done via a mailing list on will there
have to be an election body that determines validity of voters and
resolves any disputes about the election?  The only issues that I see
with this is making sure that the email received is from the real
person, and technical issues, say crashes during the middle
of the voting period and people don't know if their vote got recorded
or not.  The election oversight group can provide direction during
these events.  Also we are assuming is a trustable host,
which I believe that it is but people who are paranoid might not.
