My dear friend

such solution exists !
Much better than the options currently available !
You see Italian patent SA2007A000001 - SA2007A000002 - NA2007A000014-
RM2008A000199 - RM2008A000278 - RM2008A000498
In the name Cascella Giuseppe - Italy

This voting system is "reasonably secure, accurate, and reliable system
that enables auditing and is audited to
reduce the potential for a fraudulent result below a reasonably small
threshold and yet maintains usability, accessibility and ballot secrecy.

Regards
Cascella
