I think he means that nobody is watching you vote and potentially can see what you have voted. This cannot be guaranteed with online voting.
I'm not sure about the laws in my country about this, but I'm pretty sure that being able to vote for any party or candidate and doing so in complete privacy is amongst them.
Votes can also not be tied to a person. What they could do is determine on which pile my vote is though.
We used to have computers for voting, but as it became common knowledge that your privacy could not be guaranteed 100% we reverted back to the paper and pencil method.
A machine which flawlessly performs the instructions it is given, no matter how flawed those instructions may be.
