Can anyone recommend a good vendor for secure internet voting?

I am the secretary of a minor political party in Oregon. We need to do secure remote internet voting of about 55,000 members for elections by district. I have a voter file which is basically a flat file with voter information plus information about the legislative districts plus a unique ID. Our idea is to send each member a card with the unique ID that, once a person logs in, will enable them to vote in all races associated with the districts they live in. Can anyone recommend a good system?

why not use and set it up as a closed, timed survey? you can upload your member list, it sets a unique identifier and will send out invitation and reminder emails, among a variety of other things.

Seconding LimeSurvey. We use it for our corporate surveys of customers and it works wonderfully to identify who has taken the survey and who hasn't, with disposable one time, random generated access tokens per user. It works really great.

Depending on how secure and auditable your ballot needs to be, you could consider contracting an organisation like Electoral Reform Services. (They have an internet ballot service.) UK based, they do provide international services, but might not be cheap. There's probably a US equivalent...

The State of Geneva (Switzerland) has an internet voting system in use since 2003 (and contsantly developed since). It is open to license it to foreign entities.
