It is not both anonymous and authenticating. Current voting processes do both.

And most importantly, there is no voter verifiable ballot, which is
why we're doing this work in the first place.

Besides, everyone I know hates those menu based phone systems. And
it can get frustrating when there are 30 decisions to make on an
election ballot, some with up to a dozen candidates. That's what
ballots are often like in California, famous for its numerous
propositions. Or a governor's race with over 100 candidates.
