Liquid Democracy maybe?

> Hello everybody, I come to you with a challenge!
> I helping the occupy Chicago movement get organized. A constant request
> that I get is for web based voting.
> The requirements are that is be  difficult if not impossible to game the
> system. The way I think this can be implemented is by requiring everyone who
> wants to vote, has to show up once to register to vote. During this process
> we would give them some type of PIN or unique ID that would be different
> then their login and password, which they must enter in order to vote. And
> to make sure a single person does not sign up multiple times we would take
> each persons picture as part of the registration process, but it would be a
> side profile picture so people do not need to worry about us putting it in
> some govt database. If all the pictures are a side profile with the same
> backround, we should be able to do basic enough facial recognition to make
> sure the same person isn't in there twice, but not enough that it could be
> used for anything else.
> I am unfortunately not a programmer. I am not looking for someone to write
> facial recognition software. Only the voting part. If it can be done
> securely I would like to integrate this system into a drupal site. But even
> if it is all done in perl, that is fine. This email is mostly to get
> preliminary information from those more experienced then I in programming to
> see what the possibilities are and get an idea of how I should approach
> this.
> Direct Democracy is a pretty big challenge, think you are up to it ?
> Eventually if this works I would like to spread it to the occupy movements
> around the globe. Currently there are 870 cities participating.
