Internet voting seems to be a wonderful system for encouraging fraud. When you go into a booth you go in alone and no one can see what you do. When someone votes at the computer at home, there's no guarantee that person is actually voting. Other electronic voting solutions have their own problems which have been pointed out on this site in other posts. These, of course, include hacks:
Note how they try to scold the intruder by saying: "I have no problem debating the merits of electronic voting with anyone, but breaking and entering is not an appropriate forum for technology debate," Adler said.
It would be nice if the reasoned debate had worked, something like: "Electronic voting is not secure since it can be hacked. Paper ballots are far more secure. Case closed." And maybe that is happening in Congress now with these Holt and Graham bills. If they had never been hacked, the voting firms would say "we're hackproof" and the debate might be different. Instead, it's clear they are not.
In this case, "breaking and entering" serves a very useful purpose in this debate because it demonstrates that you can't get to a reasonable threshold for miscounting votes using electronic voting alone. That said, it is illegal.
