In my mind e-vote is very inclusive. Afrinic meeting happen in
particular country but anyone vote from anywhere if he cant attend
meeting. How more inclusive it gets? About "personal contact" pro for
paper ballot, it seem good. But it become more bad than good when
candidate dont trust observer and nomcom and all people of integrity
who count ballot. It seem more recipe for disaster.

There is need to choose. Go e-vote and avoid controversy. Go ballot
vote with controversy marred election.

I dont like idea of both. Chhoose one. E-vote, or ballot paper.
