Internet-based voting for government elections is sucker bait

Democracy's Biggest Cyberthreat May Not Be Malware

http://j.mp/Maraz0  (Internet Evolution)

  "Attempts by other countries to design and build alternative online
   voting systems have met with failure as a result of the more
   traditional cybersecurity threats that Kaspersky alludes to. Recall
   what happened when Washington, DC, introduced efforts to allow
   Internet voting for overseas voters. When invited to test it, security
   experts hacked the system within 48 hours. To prove their point, the
   hackers voted Futurama's drunken robot Bender to head the District of
   Columbia's school board."
