Interesting reading on computer voting lack of security: Election hacked, drunken robot elected to school board - The Register. Professor Alex Halderman from the University of Michigan, with help of bright students, broke into the voting system to be tested and compromised the voting process completely. The published paper Attacking the Washington, D.C. Internet Voting System - Scott Wolchok, Eric Wustrow, Dawn Isabel, and J. Alex Halderman (PDF) describes how very thoroughly the complete voting infrastructure was compromised and what levels of access the attackers had and could have. I was amused by the webcams mentioned which allowed the attackers to find out at what times the systems were monitored actively and whether the administrators were aware of any break-ins happening.

The question remains: did Bender win the election for head of the school board?
