“I love how wonderfully vague your posts are. What specifically did I say that applies to all methods? How specifically does asymmetric encryption apply here?”
" But if there is any way for the fact that someone voted E > H > I > R > V > B > A > D > U > S > X > Y > Z to get exposed to the public, then we could have people bribe or threaten that you must vote exactly that way or else you and your family will be hunted down and destroyed.
You say anonymize the ballots. But then you figure out that H won, but you have to leak the decryption key to the public or else people may fear that someone in the ballot counting process artificially made “H” actually equal Dr. Fascist instead of Ima Goodperson, the person who was supposed to be labeled H.
My point is, you cannot have a transparent, secure, and bribe-free election under IRV although you can with Score Voting."
