Dont despair over the DC hacking. Here is a short list of positive news for Internet voting:

Pasadena Star News, Two Sunday editions
Are you ready for Internet voting? For millions of Americans overseas, it's the only way to ensure their votes are counted

Also, RE: CA Prop 14 (nonpartisan elections) and the future of CA politics

Both articles have excellent debates in the comments.

Op Ed News
Does the DC Fiasco Damn Internet Voting?

Scary Stories Fail to Stop Internet Voting

Rather than using the results of scientific testing, and probability calculation, opponents of Internet voting have commonly resorted to telling scary stories about what might happen. In 2004 this tactic had spectacular success. The Department of Defense had already spent over $22,000,000 on an Internet voting project. It was ready to be used in the 2004 November election, but well publicized scary stories had it halted.

Since that time, state election officials, the military, and DoD have regained their reason, and Internet voting is coming back.
