Local body vote papers left on doorstep below sealed letter box

Caroline Williams Reporter from Stuff

A stack of six envelopes containing voting papers for the local body elections were spotted at the doorstep of a derelict building on a busy central Auckland footpath on Thursday, despite the letter box being taped shut. NZ Post admitted the delivery person had left the voting papers on the footpath, but said it took the responsibility of delivering voting papers "very seriously".
Do you think online voting would help eliminate the risk of election fraud?
