Don't create an online voting system using NI numbers as identification to vote

Video on why this is a bad idea (By Computerphile):

petition is calling for the government to “Create an online voting system using NI numbers as identification to vote” believing that a better voting system would involve using the Internet as a platform as more people would come forward to vote as it has easier access and by using the NI numbers everyone with having a unique number in which to cast their vote.

The biggest issue with this idea is security as hacking one server could mean you could post millions of fake ballots with just one security hole compared with the paper method where a security hole would only affect one vote with the same effort.
