23. you know about the local election
that was overturned because the lever machine jammed, right? Of course, it was overturned a couple of years after the wrong person was seated, but what the heck.

I have no reason to believe that either of these problems, or the other problems I know about, were due to hacks. I believe this anomaly was found by John Gideon, who was curious about why a precinct appeared to have a 67% undervote rate. (As for the local race, I used teh Google.) It's pretty hard to look for lever machine problems, or non-problems, because many counties don't post ED-level data.
