Absentee voting

The Taipei Times reports:

The adoption of an absentee-ballot system continued to be a bone of contention between the pan-green and pan-blue camps as pundits from both sides could not agree on the issue at a roundtable held at the Central Election Commission (CEC) yesterday.

While the pan-blues argued that the implementation of an absentee-ballot system would ensure the right to vote for all Taiwanese nationals, including those living overseas, the pan-greens said the system must not be launched haphazardly, especially as Beijing could easily intercept correspondence between Taiwan and China.
I like the idea of absentee voting but certainly fear problems with the way that voting would go over in China. Do you think Taishang there won't fear their mail being checked on its way out?
