If there is one takeaway from this swiss voting debacle, then it's this:

Electronic voting is a fundamentally flawed concept because any election where people have to be cryptographers to audit election results lacks legitimacy, period.

Note: ability to audit is not even "verify", it's less than that. Even with a perfect cryptographic system people have to have the ability to look into the results and you can't do that if the average person has to be a cryptographer.
