Plus, I’d argue that online voting might actually be easier to manipulate
Isn't online voting used for electing CWU national and regional officer positions? It is used for Labour Party regional and national officer elections.
They are conducted by the Electoral Reform Society (as are CWU postal ballots), so should be safe enough.
I think political elections, Council, Mayoral, General Elections etc should also be conducted online, as well as physically. I think it would encourage greater participation, especially among younger people who seem to use the internet far more than older people who could still vote in polling stations if they want to.
