We provide an overview of some of the security issues involved in securely implementing Lalley and Weyl's "Quadratic Voting", and suggest some possible implementation architectures. Our proposals blend "end-to-end verifiable" voting methods with anonymous payments. We also consider new refund rules for quadratic voting, such as a "lottery" method.
