4. read today's paper on the Pentagon's flawed e-voting (pls read)
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/3419775.stm

Pentagon e-voting plan 'flawed':The Pentagon has defended its internet voting system after a critical report recommended it should be scrapped.

Four computer experts who reviewed the pilot project said the risks of online voting could not be eliminated.

"It has numerous other fundamental security problems that leave it vulnerable to a variety of well-known cyber attacks," said the report.

The Pentagon is standing by the system, which could be used in November's presidential elections. <snip>

In the US, some seven states are trying out the Secure Electronic Registration and Voting Experiment, (Serve), system. It is expected to be first tested at the beginning of February in South Carolina's primary election. <snip>

They said ballots could be changed in ways which were impossible to detect, potential skewing the result in close contests.

More damaging, the experts questioned the whole premise of using the internet in the voting process. <snip>
