Washington DC's new online voting system is vulnerable to attack.
"The had asked outsiders to attempt to infiltrate the system. So a U-M professor promptly "unleashed his students" on the voting system, which was designed to allow military and overseas voters to cast ballots digitally, the Post reported."
One of these students succeeded. I am not sure this is news. It could have been assumed. Since the contentious and disputed 2000 presidential election, there has been a dramatic move to bring modern technology into the ballot process. I have argued against this from day one. As messy, time consuming and occasionally confusing as the paper ballot process can be, you can't hack a "chad."
